Elderly people need specialised rehabilitation in order to maintain their independence and mobility for as long as possible. Movement is the key to stay pain free in your later days, even for sufferers of conditions such as Parkinson’s and osteoarthritis or people who are recovering from a fall.

With age, your musculoskeletal system becomes weaker and stiff, making it slower and harder to perform daily activities. It might also be hard to stand or walk, therefore increasing the risk of sustaining injuries from falling. Contrary to popular belief, in order to maintain mobility and avoid aches, you need to keep moving.

At Excellence Physiotherapy we offer, in London, all the rehabilitation services an elderly person needs in order to stay independent and active:

  • Walk help
  • Fall prevention
  • Transfer learning
  • Joint flexibility and muscle strength
  • Gait re-education and balance exercises
  • Rheumatological and orthopaedic reduction
  • Neurological rehabilitation
  • Fracture rehabilitation
  • Incontinence rehabilitation
  • Prolapse rehabilitation

We always work with the patient to set personalised goals and tailor the treatment and exercises accordingly. Treatment sessions can vary depending on your goals and we can also prescribe exercises you can perform on a daily basis, in between sessions. This will help you achieve your goals faster and stay active on a regular basis. As your mobility and strength improves, so will your mood and physiological symptoms such as fear and depression will slowly diminish.

We offer physiotherapy for the elderly during home visits within London, so you can go through all treatments in comfort at familiar environment. If you are located at a nursing or care home in London, we can visit you there and also work with your carers, to educate them on your personal needs and teach them how they can help you with mobility from day to day.
