How to stay active in later life
As you get older, your muscles and joints can become stiffer. This is due to the ageing process, wear and tear, and not using your muscles as much as before. The great thing is, however, that muscles can be retrained at any age – even in people aged over 100. So with a little help and guidance from Blue Koala Physiotherapy, you can help to retain your mobility and independence.
Manual therapy for stiff muscles and joints
Stiffness in your muscles and joints can be relieved to a great extent by manual therapy, soft tissue massage and/or acupuncture. When combined with movement therapy and strengthening exercises, you can soon enjoy a future where you move fluidly, easily and with less pain.
Learn to move with confidence
If you have a fear of falling, physiotherapy can help. Strength and balance exercises are proven to help improve your balance and flexibility, general fitness and mobility. During your physio appointment your needs will be assessed, you'll receive hands on manual therapy plus a programme of bespoke exercises to do at home. For a 1:1 session to get you moving again please book on 01273 030730.
Helping in osteoporosis
Osteoporosis is loss of bone density, which can lead to bones becoming easy to fracture. Physiotherapy can make a significant, positive difference if you suffer from osteoporosis. Strengthening exercises of both the lower and upper limbs have been shown to have a good effect in those with early osteoporosis and osteopaenia (slight loss of bone mineral density). Many people with osteoporosis are afraid of falling, and the consequences this may have. But strengthening the muscles in your legs can significantly help maintain your mobility, fitness and independence.
