Physical Therapist Services for Older Adults
More than 70 million Americans age 50 and older suffer from at least one chronic condition.
One of the keys to preventing chronic conditions is regular physical activity, but declines in strength and flexibility can make that a challenge for even the most determined older adults.
That's where your physical therapist comes in! Physical therapists are movement experts who can help you overcome pain, gain and maintain movement, and preserve your independence, often without the need for surgery or long-term use of prescription drugs.
You can contact a physical therapist directly for an evaluation. To find a physical therapist in your area, visit Find a PT.
