BACKGOUND

Australian’s population is rapidly ageing. As life expectancy continues to improve, so does the risk of having chronic diseases. Ageing is progressive and leads to generalised impairment of functions. Although disability is not an inevitable part of the experience of ageing, it does become more common at older ages. Disability is sometimes directly related to age related deconditioning, dementia, paralysis, stroke, Parkinson disease, arthritis, diabetes, balance disorder and falls, depression, social isolation and anxiety are just to name the few.  One of the major concern in old age is loss of balance and falls. Falls often result in fractures or other serious injuries, with considerable cost to the individual and the health system.

Physical disability or limitation such as arthritis, pain and so forth, tend to limit the person’s ability to attend to simple household tasks, and consequently becomes dependent on other people for simple daily living activities. These activity limitations then leads to restriction on other crucial personal activities such as shopping, outing, and recreational activities. Most of the time, physical disability can lead to many other problems such as social isolation and dependence on others for quality of life.

Therefore it is crucial to stay physically, mentally and socially active in order to minimise the effects of the ageing process.   Good health not only helps older Australians to enjoy a good quality of life and to participate fully in the community, but also helps to reduce their demands for health and aged care services.

Physiotherapists are experts in assessing the chronic pain, physical limitation, mobility limitation, and physical ability to do daily living activities. They provide thorough assessment and implement clear and concise exercise program to improve the muscles and bone health. These exercise programs may include gentle exercise, strength training program, group exercises, Taichi, hydrotherapy, gym based exercises, strength and balance training. Physiotherapist also help to manage your chronic pain so that the patient continue to enjoy the life to its fullest, and remain active.
