iPHYSIO Australia has developed a patient-centred Holistic Therapy Program that assists aged care residents to stay mobile, comfortable and happy whilst improving their quality of life.
Chronic pain is ongoing pain which can be long-lasting and often severe. Unfortunately, diagnosis of chronic pain can be very difficult, particularly with the cognitively impaired, and it is estimated that 60-83% of Australian aged care residents are affected.
Chronic Pain is associated with substantial disability from:
- Reduced mobility
- Avoidance of activity
- Social isolation
- Sleep impairment
