As we get older changes occur in our bodies which results in a gradual in a loss of strength, balance and flexibility. In turn, those changes can affect how we move about within our environment.  The changes that occur with aging affect us even without the presence of medical conditions. However, it is well recognized that older adults are also more likely to have multiple chronic conditions and take multiple medications than younger people.

All of these changes can lead to a loss of independence as well as a higher risk of falling. Falls can result in injury, weakness, loss of mobility, hospitalization, decreased quality of life, fear of falling and even death. However, most falls can be prevented by addressing the factors that contribute to an increased chance of falling, many of which are due to weakness and poor balance.  Improvements in strength, balance and mobility can occur well into a person’s 80’s, 90’s or older with the right exercise program that physiotherapy can provide.

R & R Seniors’ Physiotherapy Services offers individualized client-focused assessment and treatment programs for addressing the older adult’s realistic goals related to mobility, regaining previous independence after illness or injury and maximizing independence within realistic expectations.
