How Physical Therapy Helps
We believe that the Golden Age should be golden.
INCREASED SPEED MOVING ABOUT
Speed of walking has been called the “Sixth Vital Sign” because of its importance and relation to older adults’ function and mortality. Prestige Rehab clinicians can intervene with treatment to improve speed, stability, and safety. Evidence shows that increasing walking speed by as little as 0.1 meters/second not only improves independence, but also increases life expectancy.
A complete physical therapy treatment plan can alleviate and reduce common causes of pain in older adults and improve muscle strength, joint stability, flexibility, and circulation. Which, in turn, can enhance the quality of life.
Treating balance and reducing the risk of falls begins with a thorough, patient-specific evaluation. Observing patients in their own homes allows our therapists to preemptively identify issues that may result in falls. When we dose therapeutic exercise and balance retraining properly, we reduce balance-related issues and falls. We proactively screens patients and gathers information on changes including overall balance and how pathology, impairments, functional limitations, behavioral patterns, and environmental factors affect the ability to move in space. If the individual demonstrates signs outside normative values, we request physician’s orders for a tailored treatment program before an adverse event occurs.
