Physiotherapy Services

The elderly have limitations in physical functionality that is why they tend to suffer more significant problems, mainly about accidents that can physically harm the individual.  Also the elderly are frailer, that is why it is recommended to perform activities that help exercise joints, bones, and muscles, to prevent falls and breakage of any body structure.

 An area that helps the exercise of adults is the physiotherapy which tries to recover the facility of movement and also is prevented and promoted, stimulating each zone of the individual. Techniques and movements are used in which the elderly will rely on some aspects around them to carry out the activities supervised by a specialist. These methods are implemented to keep the body as strong and stable as possible, to reduce the risk of accidents.

The programs that are implemented within the physiotherapy go according to the stimulation of the extremities to allow to the resistance, the force and the flexibility that will help them to carry out their daily activities without as much difficulty as it would be if this technique were not implemented.

The people who work in this, which are the physiotherapists, are in charge of employing these procedures in geriatric patients and must know perfectly the anatomy of the body and recognize that a patient with a weaker body must be treated with extreme care. These people usually work with people who have diseases such as Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s, as well as with individuals who have suffered from fractures or suffer from conditions such as arthritis, osteoporosis, among others.

At El Mirador Assisted Living want our residents to develop all their skills without limitation; we hope that over time the body of our guests is strengthened to avoid damage to their person. Thanks to this desire, we have physiotherapy that will help speed up the movements of our older adults so that they feel more comfortable and self-sufficient.
