As we age many people start to experience bodily aches and pains. Often these start with injuries, and many times conditions such as arthritis can develop. These kinds of conditions and sustained injuries can lead to a lack of movement and can eventually leave a senior home bound. This is not good for a seniors health and can lead to weight gain, lack of socialization and depression.
Physical therapy helps seniors stay active and have an improved quality of life. A physical therapist can teach you exercises that will help you to not only stay more limber by increasing your range of motion, but also will strengthen muscles around areas where you may feel pain, stiffness, tension or even numbness. By strengthening these muscles, there is added support in the affected area, which will decrease the pain and tension.
It is important to understand that physical therapy is not a cure, it is a process and it takes work and dedication on the part of the patient as well as knowledge and care on the part of the physical therapist. You will need to continue to do the exercises to feel the effects in your daily routine
