Geriatric Physiotherapy


Ageing doesn’t have to mean decline. Sure, we have to work harder to stay in shape as we get older, but there is nothing out there that says you can’t be fit and healthy at any age, and there are anecdotes everywhere proving this. This is where geriatric physiotherapy at Innova Physiotherapy in Hamilton comes in!

We understand how achieving fitness requires diligence, a proper diet, plenty of exercise and appropriate support that geriatric physiotherapy offers. Your geriatric physiotherapist can correct any number of tiny irregularities that might make your life miserable. As we age, we accumulate all kinds of physical quirks like poor posture or bad ergonomic habits. Many older people also require an assessment of seating and mobility needs and exploring the use of aids. Our focus with older people is to restore and preserve your independence.
