Occupational or Physical Therapy for Seniors

At Petkov Bodywork Therapy, we hold a special place for the old aged.

Physical therapy helps people recover from injuries, illnesses, and other medical problems that limit their ability to move. It also improves strength, flexibility, balance, coordination, and endurance.

When a person has advanced in age, he or she may face conditions that start to affect their physical function and mobility.

Conditions such as arthritis, osteoporosis, hip and joint replacement, Alzheimer’s disease, balance disorders, and incontinence could intrude into your life.

But with the help of a physiotherapist, you may be able to enhance movement, minimise resistance, prevent injury etc. This is where we come to your help!

Why Is Physical Therapy Important for Seniors?

Physical therapy can help seniors stay active and independent by improving mobility, reducing pain, preventing falls, and helping them maintain muscle tone. In addition, physical therapists can teach older adults how to perform daily activities such as bathing, dressing, eating, grooming, toileting, and transferring safely.
