Ageing is an inevitable process. It reduces the muscle strength and bone density, increases body fat, stiffens joints and worsens coordination, leading to poor fitness and psychological deterioration.
How to prevent it? BY PHYSIOTHERAPY!
One may argue that physiotherapy is of no benefit, as ageing is an inevitable process. However, it is proven by scientific research that physiotherapy helps in improving balance, strength, coordination, motor control, flexibility, endurance, functional ability and eventually maintaining independence in the elderly, as studies have shown that disuse is the cause of at least half of the age-related changes to muscles, bones and joints.
