Geriatric Physical Therapy is Focused on Optimizing Aging

As we age, our bodies go through a variety of changes that can affect our physical abilities and overall health. Geriatric physical therapy is a specialized area of practice that focuses on the unique needs of older adults. We offer tailored treatments to improve mobility, strength, balance, and overall quality of life for seniors.

Why is Geriatric Physical Therapy Important?

The aging process can lead to a decline in physical function and an increased risk of falls and injury. Geriatric physical therapy can help older adults maintain their independence and quality of life by addressing common age-related conditions such as osteoporosis, arthritis, balance disorders, and post-surgical rehabilitation.
