We are living in an increasingly ageing population. Not only do people need to stay fit to cope with the changes to the body brought on by the ageing process, but also to ensure they are strong enough to recover from illness or injury.
Physiotherapy is fundamental in promoting recovery and the ability to move.
Hallamshire Physiotherapy Clinic are specialists in managing a range of conditions suffered by older adults. All of our highly skilled and approachable therapists provide treatments that are evidence based, they will explain why you have a problem, what you can do about it and how you can start regaining your life again. We believe activating you and changing how you view your problem is key to successful recovery.
At Hallamshire Physiotherapy our specialist therapists will listen to you, we won’t rush you, we will take time to get to know you and provide treatment for you at a speed that is comfortable and manageable.
Some of the conditions treated by physiotherapy include:
There are other changes associated with the process of ageing that can be addressed before they become problematic. For example:
Physiotherapy is of course unable to stop the ageing process, but it can help to reduce the impact on the body. The physiotherapist will make a full assessment of the person’s ability and they will identify the key factors causing problems for that individual. Physiotherapy will be aimed at and seek to improve strength, balance, coordination, flexibility and fitness. Our specialist therapists will also assess mobility both in terms of walking, ease of getting onto and off the bed, chair and floor, as well as specific aspects of functional ability a person identifies.
Physiotherapists at the Hallamshire Clinic will also provide advice and education on the benefits of exercise and help to devise individual programmes. All treatment is patient centred with a strong emphasis on problem solving with realistic, achievable solutions.
Treatment is available for 1:1 clinic sessions or for home visits. We also provide joint exercise sessions of groups up to 3 people with the same clinical condition, e.g., post-operative rehabilitation for knee or hip replacement, or post spinal or shoulder fracture. Physiotherapy can also be provided for people who are living in sheltered accommodation, residential or nursing homes.
You can be confident with Hallamshire Physiotherapy Clinic. Our outstanding reputation speaks for itself and all our high-quality specialist treatments and exercise programmes you can trust.
