Falls prevention programmes
Our falls prevention programme, developed by Physiocomestoyou helps reduce the risk of falling in your home. Following an in-depth assessment a tailored programme is developed to address any possible contributors to falls. The physiotherapist will work with your professional carer to increase mobility, flexibility and strength to reduce the risk of falling. A course of 5 individual sessions is recommended (including assessment) – although this can be reduced if requested.
Rehabilitation following hospital admission
Following hospital admission, the physiotherapist can visit you in hospital and start rehabilitation as soon as possible – speeding up the recovery process. They will then continue rehabilitation when you are discharged from hospital, working alongside your professional live-in carer to help you return to your normal daily activities, with as much independence as possible.
Neurological Physiotherpists have many techniques to support those who are suffering from neurological disorders, including a stroke or Parkinson’s. Treatments include stretching, massage and acupuncture. Rehabilitation exercises may also be used, including walking, wheelchair practice, balance and movement control and exercises to help improve posture, stretch out muscle tightness/spasm and stiff joints, improving function and relieving pain.
Massage can be used to help elderly people following an injury or surgery by relieving pain, breaking down scar tissue and reducing swelling. Massage also is also very effective at promoting relaxation and improving sense of overall wellbeing.
Following injury to the joints whether sprains or fractures, manual therapy can help restore movement and function.
Research has shown that elderly people are just as capable of building muscle as the young. Physiocomestoyou are well qualified in assessing needs and designing an individualised exercise programme to help clients build muscle. By keeping muscles strong it helps to keep life as independent as possible, whilst improving mobility and prevents falls.
Programmes for osteoporotic clients
Physiotherapists are able to assess the osteopenic or osteoporotic client and devise an individualised exercise programme to help combat the physical signs of osteoporosis. This includes strengthening around the joints which are prone to becoming osteoporotic and working on posture to help prevent the spinal curvature that can occur secondary to osteoporosis.
