Geriatric Therapy in Havelock NC

As you grow older, you may begin to notice new challenges and difficulties popping up in your life. You’re not alone in many of these struggles. That’s why the physical therapists at Peak Performance Sports and Physical Therapy in Havelock, North Carolina offer geriatric therapy.

Geriatric therapy is a physical therapy practice designed with seniors in mind. It’s important to note that our team is equipped to provide special treatment for seniors since more than 30 percent of our patients in our clinics are over the age of 55.

If you’re a senior citizen, you may be unsure about whether you need geriatric therapy. There are a lot of reasons someone would choose geriatric rehabilitation. It can help you recover from injuries and manage chronic conditions. Even if you’ve never been injured, it can help you improve your fitness to prevent injuries.

Reasons to see a physical therapist for geriatric rehabilitation

We commonly provide geriatric therapy for the following conditions:

  • Balance and coordination — Geriatric therapy may include balance and coordination treatments. These can help reduce the chances of falls that could cause serious harm to your body.
  • Arthritis — Physical therapists can help reduce the joint pain and improve range of motion in people with arthritis. Our team uses exercises, stretches and other techniques that can help improve your quality of life if you have arthritis.
  • Pre- and post-surgical rehabilitation — Sometimes, surgery is the best course of treatment for an injury or condition. In these cases, physical therapy can still help. Pre- and post-surgical rehabilitation can help prepare your body for recovery. This helps you recover faster and with better quality.
  • Stroke recovery — Strokes cause neurological damage that makes living a normal life more challenging. Since many stroke patients are over the age of 65, geriatric physical therapists are skilled to treat people recovering from this condition.
