Geriatrics program


Elderly people do not need to stay at home or lie in bed. At Amsterdam Clinics, the physiotherapy team offers programs to help the elderly continue living a healthy life. The aging process can cause problems such as osteoporosis, poor gait, and walking difficulties, falls, malnutrition, and arthritis. If a patient is bedridden, this can lead to bed sores. Physiotherapy helps improve and maintain elderly people in good health, as it helps increase the mobility and flexibility of joints, improves balance and coordination, strengthens overall fitness, and teaches the right way to walk.
