There is a well-established evidence base for physiotherapy interventions to improve outcomes for older people, particularly those with falls, stroke disease, arthritis and frailty. There is also an international evidence base for the benefit of exercise interventions for older people with frailty, which are predominantly physiotherapy-led, or supervised.

Dawn Jarvey, one of our senior Physiotherapists has extensive experience in this field. She runs clinics at Richmond Village, Letcombe Regis and also offers Domiciliary visits. All our physiotherapists treat musculoskeletal problems in the older person in our clinics at the Leisure centre and the Health Centre.

An extensive Physiotherapy assessment will include looking at balance, falls risk, general mobility and muscle strength as well as general function and activities of daily living (ADL’s).

Treatments may include:-

    •Exercise programmes
    •Manual Therapy
    •Home Assessment
    •Mobility and Equipment Advice
    •Aqua therapy
