Geriatric Rehabilitation

Addressing a wide range of diagnoses, our Geriatric Rehabilitation Programs are designed with the special needs of this population in mind. We are mindful that more than any other patient population, the geriatric patient needs to be addressed on an individual basis, with a thorough initial evaluation to carefully document areas of strength, weakness and identify special concerns. From that point we tailor a rehabilitation program to suit each individual’s needs and progress them according to their own capabilities, tolerance and needs. We are also careful to consider the side effects of any medications that our patients may be on, and monitor their blood pressure as needed.

Research indicates, and our clinical experience validates, the finding that a large percentage of seniors with conditions such as Degenerative Disc Disorder, Degenerative Joint Disorder, and Osteoarthritis can benefit significantly from well-planned physical therapy. Careful increases in strength, flexibility and mobility can significantly improve the quality of life for this population.

Common referral conditions include:

  • Degenerative Conditions such as Osteoarthritic neck, back, knee or shoulder
  • Shoulder Impingement/Bursitis
  • Total Joint Replacements (Knee, Hip, Shoulder)
  • Bursitis of the Hip
  • Functional Restoration such as Balance Training, and Fall Prevention
  • Rotator Cuff Tears/Repair
  • Wrist Fracture Recovery
