How Does Our Geriatric Physiotherapy in Delhi Best?

At our Delhi-based center, we offer comprehensive geriatric services.

Our goal is to provide functional independence to elder ones because many elders in India are suffering from acute to chronic illnesses which lead to the loss of day-to-day function.

Our geriatric rehabilitation works on three areas-

  • normal aging due to deconditioning and disuse
  • Cardiovascular issues like stroke and breathing problem
  • Skeletal problems like osteoarthritis and surgeries of hip or joints

Our trained physiotherapists make elderly people lifestyle easy with exercises for endurance and strength of muscles so that they can lift a jug, make a bed and wash their clothes.

Walking Rehabilitation

We provide special walking programs for those elders who have difficulties in walking due to a fall, an injury or joint pain. In this case, patients may develop psychomotor regression syndrome (PRS). It is related to motor symptoms and psychological disorder. Our experts help to deal with both motor and psychological disorder of the patient through medical tools, massages and body movement exercises. It takes time to get satisfactory results.
