  • Arthritis
  • Alzheimer's disease
  • Osteoporosis
  • Balance disorders
  • Hip and joint replacement
  • Incontinence

  • Physical therapy can also help older adults in dealing with one of the widespread issues, balance disorder. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, nearly one-third of people over the age of 65 fall each year. This contributes to the fall being the leading cause of injury among senior citizens. It may lead to hip fractures, which in turn, leads to a downward health spiral. Recovery from hip fractures needs hospitalization for a minimum of a week, with approximately 20% of them dying within a year. Unfortunately, the remaining 80% do not return to their previous level of functioning.

    Physical therapy at Nexus and guidance from seasoned physiotherapist can help older adults to remain strong, independent, and productive for their entire lifetime.
