Augusta, GA — 4/12/2021: Most elderly US citizens deal with immobility or difficulty with independent living as they age, according to the US government’s census. While some of the underlying causes come from ableist structures and lack of accessibility policymaking, many senior citizens do not treat pain and stiffness with the PT they sorely need.
Healing Hands Physical Therapy plays an essential role in its community in addressing this gap in care. The company has a network of clinics that work to provide awareness and offer affordable access to physical therapy in Augusta and nearby areas. In particular, it's active living for seniors helps older adults maintain functionality through PT.
The physical therapists in the team perform a range of PT techniques that address pain and underlying barriers to mobility due to aging. The team assesses abilities and comfort in their initial sessions and conducts a detailed conversation about their clients’ individual goals and needs.
After that, methods such as massage therapy, ambulatory therapy, and even laser therapy may be used to achieve goals set by the client and therapist. The company also stands in as an educator for their clients on how to apply skills learned in PT for the best possible results and how to prevent muscles and joints from deteriorating.
A company representative stated, “We see so many older clients who want to stay mobile and flexible without being in pain. It became clear to us very early on that we needed to up our game when it came to ensuring the best possible quality of life for the senior citizens in our community. That’s why we treat just about any PT-related issue that elderly people may have, as well as providing a commitment to go above and beyond with awareness and practical lessons.”
