When we think of Physical Therapy, the pictures that usually come to mind are severe accidents, injuries, and conditions. We think of it as a remedial program for those who are suffering from the aftermaths of such events. However, what we fail to realize is that Physical Therapy has a broader scope than that.
Usually, we think of our seniors, our grandparents, for example, as people who need intensive care from the doctors. We have to understand that that may not be the case for others. Yes, that might be very helpful for some, but not every elderly needs it.
Some elderly just need to have their strength and balance improved, to stay active even in their condition, and to build their confidence back. That’s not something a doctor can help the elderly with. They can really use all those benefits from Physical Therapy. All these can really contribute to their well being and physical independence.
