What is Geriatric Therapy?

Geriatrics is a branch of medicine that deals with the needs of aging adults. Geriatric therapy treats related conditions such as arthritis, osteoporosis, cancer, joint replacement, and balance disorders.

As we age, our muscles lose strength fairly significantly if we do not stay active and exercise. Our physical therapists can design an exercise program and supervise seniors interested in gaining strength, preventing injuries, and preventing falls, all of which ensure your chances of living at home as long as possible. Our occupational therapists will make sure your environment is safe and that you have the adaptive equipment necessary to function safely.

What are the benefits of geriatric therapy?

Pain and lack of mobility are major reasons that seniors tend to become sedentary and isolated, but not moving only exacerbates these issues.

What can I expect?

Our therapists take into account that older adults tend to become less active over time, have less strength and tolerance in muscles, have slower reaction times, and have a lower tolerance for physical activities. Because physical activity is important for anyone of any age, we aim to help our patients find something physical to do every day––even if it is just light activity. Performing these exercises can be done in a safe environment at our clinics. Subsequently, our therapists will help you apply what you learn in the clinic to your home life.
