However, if you’re practicing physical exercises or taking therapies from physiotherapists you can retain the strength. Yes! Physical therapy can be a boon to elders.

Top 5 major reasons why seniors need physical therapy

1. Recovery from fall

As people age, they need to be very cautious. Even a minor accident can be very serious for seniors. They might end up having serious bone fractures or other injuries. Taking therapies from a registered physiotherapist can help to regain strength.

2. Lower the risk of injury

Physiotherapists train seniors to maintain stability while they make a move. This would reduce the chances or risk of injury.

3. Reduce chronic pain

Chronic pains such as arthritis can cause discomforts in seniors. Physical therapy for seniors can help them to learn how to reduce such discomforts.

Seniors will have prescribed medications to ease their chronic pain issues. Physical therapy can help you to cut off the need for such medications.
