Geriatric Rehabilitation

Focus on treatment for the needs of our seniors

Geriatric rehabilitation focuses on the health and rehabilitation needs of the seniors. It uses exercise and various equipment to help patients regain their mobility after an accident, surgery or long illness resulting in reduction in physical abilities.

Benefits of Geriatric Rehabilitation

 

Reduce risks of falling - Falls are particularly troublesome when the person who suffers a fall is a senior. Benefit of rehab therapy for the elderly is that the likelihood of falls can be minimized. With training, their bodies become stronger and more adept. 

Minimise infectionMany elderly patients require rehab therapy after a joint replacement operation often it is a knee or hip replacement. To benefit and promote healing after this type of procedure, rehab therapy can be used in conjunction with medication to control the risk of infection. With increased blood flow to the affected area, the body also brings its own in-built defense force. This defense force acts to prevent possible infections.

Joint and muscle strengthening - Strengthening exercise improve function and mobility. It can also reduce pain and allow patients to be less reliant on pain medications. Ultimately, it can improve our activities of daily living.
