Recondition Strength & Mobility (For Senior & Aging Care)

Get back in Shape With Specialized Strength and Mobility Reconditioning for Seniors at Get Right Physio

When you reach a certain age, you aren’t alone in noticing you’ve gradually lost that spring in your step and have started to feel stiff, slow on your feet, and a little weaker. Though we can put this down to the aging process, you don’t have to give up your strength and mobility completely as you grow older.


Get Right Physio is an in-home physiotherapy service that works with senior clients all year round to help them restore their muscle strength and overall mobility through targeted exercises and age-specific techniques.


Take control of your physical well-being and enjoy an active life by booking a physiotherapy session with one of our skilled therapists today.

What Is Strength and Mobility Reconditioning for Seniors?

Losing strength and mobility is a natural side effect of aging, but restoring your fitness is more achievable than ever with tailor-made physiotherapy.


The reconditioning process works on reestablishing the strength and mobility you once had, which in turn helps you regain flexibility and endurance. This treatment looks a little different for each senior client, but some possible ways of improving your physical well-being through physiotherapy include aerobic exercises, weight training, and balance control activities.

How Do We Recondition Strength and Mobility for Seniors Through Physiotherapy?

As the years go by, you may find the likes of joint stiffness, decreased bone density, and a loss of muscle mass begin to slow you down. If you’ve noticed yourself feeling weaker, rigid, and limited in your mobility, scheduling an appointment with a physiotherapist is your best course of action.

During your first session, your therapist will discuss your symptoms with you and complete a physical evaluation to create a programme that works to achieve your specific goals in a safe and steady manner. Some of the examinations your therapist may carry out include assessments for your gait, balance, muscle tone, and coordination.


After your therapist has identified your areas of strength and weakness, they’ll get to work on putting together a plan of exercises and practices that you can do with them in your house or condo, hospital, long-term care facility or retirement homePhysiotherapy will help maintain your strong suits and develop your areas that need growth. The precise objectives of reconditioning for seniors will be determined on a case-by-case basis, but some common goals are:

  • Restoring muscle strength
  • Increasing mobility and agility
  • Enhancing coordination and balance
  • Improving cognitive function

Benefits of Strength and Mobility Reconditioning for Aging Clients

Elderly and aging clients regularly find they feel a renewed sense of confidence and independence through strength and mobility reconditioning. However, this isn’t the only benefit of physiotherapy. 


Below are some additional advantages.

  • Greater balance and strength play a central role in preventing falls that can lead to broken bones and reduced mobility, which may be challenging for seniors to recover from. Not only that but keeping active can lower your risk of cardiovascular issues and limit the effect of arthritis and diabetes on your life,
  • The more mobile, flexible, and strong you are, the less likely you are to experience joint, bone, and muscle pain. Moreover, should you become injured, you’ll have a much better chance of making a successful and quick recovery if you’ve already worked on reconditioning your strength and mobility beforehand.
  • Physically active seniors often notice improvements in the quality and consistency of their sleep. This alone leads to several other health benefits, such as better cognitive function, reduced stress, and a more resilient immune system.

Frequently Asked Questions

Mobility issues are a common occurrence among seniors, and some are particularly prominent due to poor muscle tone, limited range of motion, and stiffness. These include:

  • Arthritis 
  • Osteoporosis
  • Sarcopenia 
  • Obesity
  • Heart conditions

Older adults are advised to complete around 150 minutes of physical activity each week, which breaks down to 30 minutes five times a week.


At least two of your weekly exercise sessions should focus on strength training. While you can assign specific days to work on mobility, it’s best to also include some form of movement in your everyday routine.


Depending on your needs and abilities, your therapist will set goals suited to your mobility and strength, so this figure may be different for you.

Consistent practice is essential to begin noticing improvements in your strength and mobility. Dedicated senior clients may feel the benefits of physiotherapy within a few weeks or months, but it can take up to six months to enjoy the full benefits of better balance, flexibility, muscle tone, and coordination.

Before beginning any strength and mobility reconditioning programme, older clients should consult their doctor to determine if any necessary precautions may impact the nature of their treatment plan. Any underlying health issues and your medical history will need to be considered to establish if any specific techniques and movements need to be avoided. 


Once any concerns or complications are identified, you can begin working with your physiotherapist to develop a safe and effective plan for reconditioning. For your own safety and well-being, you must be entirely transparent with your therapist before they start constructing your exercise programme. 


Working on your posture, form, and proper warm-up and cool-down routines can all contribute to a successful reconditioning journey but can hinder your progress if not done correctly.
