Care of the Elderly

As we become older, there is a tendency to lose muscle strength, mobility and balance. The effects of osteoporosis can also cause problems within the spine and of certain joints. Physiotherapists are trained in creating programmes which will help to improve your strength, mobility and balance. As a result, you will be less at risk of falling.
