Geriatric Physical Therapy Edmonton

Don’t let aging swipe off your dreams; stay active and achieve it all

Geriatric Physical Therapy Edmonton

Geriatric physiotherapy is a specialized form of physiotherapy that primarily caters to the needs of older adults. It addresses a range of age-related conditions that individuals may face as they age. The therapy can be used to treat various issues such as osteoporosis, arthritis, Alzheimer’s disease, cancer, joint replacement, balance and gait disorders, neurological disorders, and incontinence.

The therapy involves a comprehensive evaluation of the patient’s physical capabilities and functional limitations. Based on the evaluation, a personalized treatment plan is developed that includes exercises and techniques to improve strength, balance, flexibility, and endurance. 

Geriatric physiotherapy also involves education on the importance of exercise, nutrition, and healthy lifestyle habits for seniors. Next Step Physio understands the importance of staying fit at all ages. Hence, we provide a comprehensive treatment plan with geriatric physiotherapy for the older people in your house.

Next step is an excellent physiotherapy clinic. I went here for physiotherapy for chronic lower back pain, the therapist did an excellent job in helping me gain my flexibility back and recover.

I'd like to say coming here was the best thing I did to help with my injury. I was in a lot of pain after my injury and I couldn't walk properly. After coming here for two months. I can finally say there is much improvement.
