Loss of Mobility


Help with loss of mobility in later life.

With advancing age, changes may occur that can lead to problems with a person’s ability to move around, or mobility.  Unsteadiness while walking, difficulty getting in and out of a chair, or falls are common problems as we get older.

Medical conditions like muscle weakness, arthritis, poor eyesight, joint problems, pain, and neurological difficulties (brain and nervous system) can all contribute to mobility problems. Sometimes several problems occur together to reduce mobility.

Poor mobility can lead to falls. Falls can result in broken bones, bruises, and loss of confidence. Unfortunately, older bones are thinner, break more easily than younger bones, and they heal less quickly and not as completely. This may mean that after a fall mobility is even worse. Falls have also been identified as a major cause of injury and death, so prevention is important.

Loss of mobility will probably cause a lack of confidence and reduce physical activity. Activity can strengthen bones and muscle improving your balance and steadiness.

Poor mobility can be helped if medical conditions causing it are diagnosed and treated. If you or your relative have been experiencing reduced mobility please contact our consultants who will assess and device a treatment plan to improve your mobility.
