Physical therapy plays an essential role in the recovery of seniors to help them improve mobility, recover from injury, manage pain, fall prevention and improve quality of life.
Aging is a normal process of life. It involves physical and cognitive changes that can affect the way a person gets up from a chair, negotiate steps, the ability to walk, get up from kneeling or from the floor. The most important goal for the aging population is to maintain independence, and move with freedom for the longest possible.
