Natural ageing comes with a lot of physical changes to the body. As well as, changes to the efficiency of the bodies internal systems. Some of these changes can be subtle while others can be more obvious to elderly patients. As a result of this, many elderly people can look and feel much younger or older than their actual age.
Here at Ballsbridge Physiotherapy, we offer a wide range of treatments to combat these negative effects. Our physiotherapists can help in reducing joint and muscle pain and discomfort. We also offer fitness classes for general well-being and health.
It is well known that poor fitness levels in old age can lead to serious health conditions such as high blood pressure, stroke, arthritis, diabetes, respiratory problems and circulatory problems.
It is extremely important to stay in good physical health, especially in later years.
In our clinic we offer an hour exercise class aiming to improve bone density and muscle strength, which reduces the effects of osteoporosis and osteoarthritis. Above all, these classes include posture and balance work, stability and strength training and mobility exercises. The classes aids in improving bone strength and reduce risk of fractures and injury.
Overall it is clear that physical activity and good physiotherapy care in old age can lead to improvements in the bodies physical, mental, muscular, motor, cardiovascular and respiratory states.
