Why Do Elders Need Physiotherapy?

We all have aches and pains that might be triggered by an active life, ageing, or even a passive one. Contrary to popular belief, physiotherapy can help with more than just sports injuries. Physiotherapy can assist you in dealing with injuries to your muscles, joints, and soft tissues. Back and neck pain and discomfort in any other portion of the body are manifestations of these conditions.

Our bodies go through several physiological changes as we get older. Lower bone density, loss of muscle strength, increased body fat, weaker coordination, and stiffer joints are all inevitable age-related problems. Such natural ageing processes can impair the elderly's mobility and balance, elevating their danger of collapse and breaking bones. One does not, however, ought to view this as an inherent aspect of old age.

Although physiotherapy treatments cannot reverse the effects of ageing on our bodies and lifestyles, they can try to mitigate their effects. Physiotherapists are qualified to recognise physical and other issues that limit people from being as proactive as possible and devise strategies to overcome them. Physiotherapy, even so, has been shown in studies to assist seniors in staying physically active retain their well-being, functional capacity, and freedom.

What Can Physiotherapy Help With?

Although many Singaporeans are aware of the advantages of physiotherapy, most are oblivious that it may be done at home.

Home physiotherapy is for individual care needs, such as seniors and those who require chronic disease management or post-surgery rehabilitation. Specialists and caregivers perform initial assessments and rehabilitation protocols to manage acute and chronic diseases.

It aids in setting short- and long-term objectives based on the patients' potential to be self-sufficient in their everyday activities. Similarly, making changes to the living environment is vital to satisfy the needs of the elderly with physical constraints in terms of increasing their mobility and safety at home.

Unlike staying in physiotherapy clinics in Singapore, the patients typically achieve greater mobility, stability, strength, and physical capacity with home physiotherapy.

Injury

Sports physiotherapy helps people regain strength and mobility in various parts of their body after an injury. Physiotherapy can also help with pain management, long-term damage, and recurrence difficulties with sports massage therapy. Every sport or strenuous physical activity presents its own set of dangers for each individual, particularly for seniors.

Chronic Pain

Physiotherapy assists patients suffering from long-term or chronic pain develop skills they need to handle their pain, maximise their mobility and enhance their quality of life. Specialised manual therapy, like clinical massage, soft tissue mobilisation, or possibly acupuncture, may be effective.

Arthritis

People recovering after corrective surgery to fix the knee pain, bone, and joint abnormalities may benefit from physiotherapy. A physiotherapist could devise a post surgical rehabilitation program that integrates muscular training and exercises to strengthen the patient's coordination and proper balance.

Cerebral Palsy

Physiotherapy is critical in helping patients with cerebral palsy manage their movement, balance, and posture symptoms. It can contribute to improving motor skills and the prevention of movement deficits deteriorating over time.

Parkinson's Disease

With the interdisciplinary management of patients with Parkinson's disease, physiotherapy is fundamental. It can significantly enhance gait, balance, transitions, manual tasks and reduce the likelihood of falling in the advanced stages of the disease.

Stroke

Early physiotherapy with stroke aids in the relearning of essential skills. After a stroke, brain swelling subsides typically within a few days, allowing for a rapid recovery. In the next few months of neurological rehabilitation, the brain's nerves adjust to take over some damaged functions. Balance, muscular strength, postural control, sensation, coordination, and stamina are areas that physiotherapists focus on.
