Senior Physiotherapy

Senior Physiotherapy Services

Senior’s massage does not differ greatly from regular massage. However, the techniques used must keep in mind that an aging body requires a little extra tenderness. Our specially trained massage therapists take great care in positioning elderly bodies and adapt massage techniques to accommodate frail and sensitive skin.

When mobility is an issue, for example if the client is bound to a wheelchair, the massage therapist will administer the treatment to the client right in their chair. Our therapists are also able accommodate the treatment for bed-bound clients.

Massage practitioners often spend more time on the hands and feet of their clients – especially if the client does not walk or does not have full use of their hands. In cases such as these, a hand or foot massage can enhance body awareness, sensation, and circulation in certain parts of an aging body. Massage is especially beneficial to diabetic patients, focusing on the lower limbs to aid in circulation.

Physiotherapy For Seniors

As people age their lifestyles tend to become more sedentary causing postural changes, weakness of our muscles will have an impact on their mobility. Our team of Physiotherapists, and other therapists will help restore your range of motion, strengthen your muscles and maintain an active lifestyle through passive therapy and supervised prescriptive exercises. Our Physiotherapists have experience in pre and post care for: knee replacement surgery, hip replacement surgery, recovery from extended hospital stays, pneumonia and significant muscle atrophy.

Acupuncture for Seniors

As a big number of older people reach retirement in record numbers, chronic health care expenses of this generation are feared to go exponentially high (not a good thing if you’re not covered). Not only that, the preventative medicine concept of Eastern medicine helps seniors get healthy naturally, without prescription side effects. Many believe acupuncture, and other alternative therapies, are the best kept secret in senior care.

Here’s why:
1. Acupuncture Returns the Body to a State of Health
2. There Are No Prescriptions in Acupuncture
3. Acupuncture Benefits the Respiratory System
4. Acupuncture Helps Treat Emotional and Mental Problems
5. Acupuncture Helps Ease Arthritis Pain

Notice - COVID-19

Physio at home is concerned about public safety due to COVID-19 with an attention towards to the most vulnerable. We have been closely monitoring the situation and have taken some additional steps to address this situation by introducing Telehealth (VIDEO CALLS) which is providing our sessions as VIDEO PHYSIOTHERAPY providing seamless services.

To stop the spread of COVID-19, we’ve implemented below steps to prevent both our patients and providers before we start any treatment.

• We implemented a passive screening step on phone or video before we can schedule an actual in person appointment or assessment with our patients.
• Our registered health care providers maintain high standards of infection prevention practices and periodically de-sanitize as required
• Our providers and patients to follow a mandatory 14day self isolation if traveled outside the country
• To stay home if the patient or provider display any symptoms of COVID-19 when due for an appointment.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, if you have any questions or concerns feel free to contact us.

New patients are now assessed through TELEHEALTH appointments (if required) and our clinics are NOT CLOSED. Just schedule an appointment as you did earlier and we’ll help you through the case.

Sincerely,
Physio at home
