It is important for our clients to be educated with their treatments and conditions rather than just treated with machines. We want their mind to feel better as well as their bodies to have an overall great well-being. Our geriatric rehabilitation benefits the elderly in multiple ways.

Physical therapy and exercise for the older person benefits:

With the help of geriatric rehabilitation the conditions elders face can be treated in a professional and safe way. One disease that is common in older adults is osteoporosis. The prevention of osteoporosis is important to older adults. With thin and weak bones it’s common a slip or fall can lead to a fractured hip, spine, or wrist. Working with our staff here at Island Sports Physical Therapy will help you treat osteoporosis by exercising safely, lifting weights so that your bones will get stronger, educating you on what diet you should be on, and how to prevent future falls that can lead to broken bones.

With help from Island Sports Physical Therapy you are ensured to live a safer, pain free life. With our combination of physical rehabilitation and our strong goal to educate our patients on their needs and health, patients leave feeling themselves.
