Alliance focuses on the concerns the physical disabilities of the senior citizens. The process of ageing is often complicated by several physical conditions and disorders like arthritis, osteoporosis, cancer, Alzheimer’s disease, hip and joint replacement, balance disorders, incontinence and so on. Alliance helps those affected by such problems and many others which may be directly or indirectly related to old age. We have developed a specialized program to help restore mobility, reduce pain, and increase fitness levels of the patients who, like all of us, deserve a dignified and independent life. The types of problems faced in geriatric physiotherapy are grouped into three different categories.
i. One category is the problems that happen because the patient simply does not use their limbs or does not exercise. These problems can be addressed by reconditioning through range-of-motion exercises and other exercises.
ii. Another category geriatric rehabilitation deals with is cardiovascular disease, like heart disease and stroke. The physiotherapy professional has an array of tools at her disposal to work with these conditions. Exercise, electrical stimulation, and more can be used.
iii. The third category is skeletal problems. Geriatric rehabilitation helps people who have these disorders, such as osteoporosis and osteoarthritis. These problems require special attention as osteoporosis makes patients frailer, and osteoarthritis is very painful.
