Home visits and treatment for older adults in Cambridge

If you’ve recently had surgery, suffered an injury or illness or been discharged from a stay in hospital, having physiotherapy at home can help you recover more quickly.

Physiotherapy can help people of all ages regain physical strength, confidence, mobility and balance, as well as treat pain.

Physiotherapy after a period of inactivity, for whatever reason, is important because a loss of general physical capability increases your risk of falling, especially if you are over 65.

The consequences of experiencing a fall can extend beyond physical injury. It can create a loss of confidence which can have a significant impact on independence, social activity and general wellbeing.

Individualised physiotherapy assessment at home

There are many reasons why we are more likely to fall as we age. Usually it’s not down to one thing but a combination of factors and a specialist falls physiotherapist should investigate all the potential causes before recommending an effective approach to treatment.
