There are so many reasons on how physical therapy could benefit aging adults and one of them is prevention of having any type of injury. Through physical therapy, you get to improve your overall activity level and confidence with movement. This, in turn, could lead to lower levels of infection that could cause pneumonia, skin problems, ulcers, and other medical complications especially after a hospital visit. Also, if you continue to move and remain active in a safe way, this also lessens stiffness and pain!
Another advantage of undergoing physical therapy for prevention is to avoid falls and to remain confident while walking and even jogging or running! Your dedicated physical therapist could provide you exercise education and options to build your balance as you sit, stand up, walk, jog, run and move about!
