A Physiotherapy assessment may be beneficial for people who are having difficulty moving around their house or local community. We can assess how you move around your home (including around your bed, on and off chairs, up and down stairs and in tight spaces such as the bathroom) and your local community (such as ramps, stairs, uneven ground, gutters and in/out of cars or public transport).
A physio assessment would combine this information with assessment of your body function such as how strong your muscles are, how well your joints move, your level of fitness and balance. This information will allow us to make recommendations for you and your family that would make moving around your house and local community easier. These improvements may help you to walk more steadily, walk without an aide such as a walking stick, ride a bike, walk up and down stairs at the shops or run after your grandchildren.
