As we age, we tend to lose flexibility, strength, and balance. Your performance can also be decreased right after you are discharged from the hospital after a long-term illness. As such, the need to maintain the desired level of fitness becomes increasingly challenging. The loss of physical activity in our daily lives could lead to falls that could cause serious injury. Physical therapy deals with people who suffer mobility issues that make it difficult for them to perform activities in their daily lives.
At Angel Health Care, we believe that every person should be able to live out their lives on their own terms. We help you work out your mobility issues to improve your quality of life and help reclaim your mobility. We offer our services throughout Citrus Heights, Fair Oaks CA, Folsom, Roseville, and Sacramento. If you are interested in our services, be sure to contact us today.
Here are some more reasons why physical therapy is important:
- Provides strength and endurance
During the process of recovery or long term illness, your strength and endurance level can decrease significantly. This can cause increased blood pressure and heart rate which can lead to a number of other problems. Physical therapy helps you stay active and influence your endurance levels long after you finish your sessions.
- Reduced falls
After a hospital stay, many are weak and more prone to falling. Failing to have physical therapy after hospitalization could potentially lead to a re-hospitalization due to an injury from a fall. Without active movements, there are increased risks of other illnesses that can develop due to no physical activity.
