As we age our body’s ability to heal and maintain stability starts deteriorating. Our muscles and joints also begin to lose their strength and become more painful and fragile. Suffering an injury of any kind can result in tremendous and prolonged pain and falls are often experienced as a result.
This is why senior rehabilitation helps you to reduce the pain by strengthening muscles and joints as well as to recover faster from injuries.
Falls and recovery
Falls are one of the largest culprits leading to most senior injuries, and once a fall is an experience, the individual is likely to experience another fall within 6 or more months on average. This can often lead to hospital stays and serious injuries such as hip fractures.
Rehabilitation will aid in recovery, pain management and regaining balance to avoid future falls from reoccurring.
In both short and long-term rehabilitation the goal is to ensure that the individual is able to go back to an independent active lifestyle.
