Your physical therapist can help you gain an understanding of the physiological and anatomical changes that occur naturally with the aging process. After performing an initial evaluation, your physical therapist will design a program with the goal of helping you to maintain and build your strength, balance, and mobility and to regain any lost abilities. Physical therapy intervention can prevent life-long disability, restoring the person’s level of functioning to its highest level.
Geriatric Physical Therapy can be used to help successfully treat various conditions including osteoporosis, arthritis, osteoarthritis, shoulder, hip and knee replacements, loss of balance, strength and endurance, and more.

“My body is much stronger overall, especially my lower body. I like the exercise program my therapists designed for me and I love that my therapists were kind, knowledgeable and so compassionate…very important for the older generation! Thank you for helping me with my recovery. ” -Edit M.
