People in their 7th decade or higher are much more active nowadays in their daily life and enjoy participation in many recreational activities. As a result, geriatric Physical Therapy rehabilitation is experiencing a shift and is now much more focused on high functional goals to help keep this age group active. Therapy is geared toward continued participation in all desired activities (e.g. golf, tennis, dancing), as well as preventing falls, deconditioning or other complications from common co-morbidities such as diabetes, high blood pressure, or heart disease.
