At First Physio, we see a lot of people over the age of 55 with aches and pains. Usually these pains are blamed on the ageing process. Our experienced therapists find quite often that your pain is caused by something that could affect a 20 year old and is treated as such. For those injuries that are age-related we can show you ways to minimise their effect and prevent it from worsening. Some of the more common problems we see in the elderly are arthritis, back and neck pains, poor balance, stiffness, post-hospital complications and shortness of breath due to lack of fitness. On your initial visit to First Physio, we will listen to your problem and an appropriate treatment and rehabilitation plan will be designed.
