Rehabilitation of the elderly by the effective communication and physical activity

Rehabilitation of the elderly includes normal aging due to disuse and ill health, cardiovascular problems such as vascular disease and stroke and skeletal problems including osteoporosis and osteoarthritic conditions such as knee and hip replacements. Physical therapy professionals [physiotherapists] use rehabilitation to work toward the goal of returning patients to their pre-injury quality of life and may use physical therapy, occupational therapy and speech therapy. As patients age, they often face many physical and emotional changes that can affect their physical, mental, social functioning and level of well-being. Rehabilitation maintains functional independence in old age. Rehabilitation of elderly patients is essential to their health and society, enabling them to thrive socially and economically.
