At Infinity Allied Healthcare, our goal is to help our patients of all ages maintain physical health and improve their well-being. Contact us to book an appointment for physiotherapy for seniors, in Chatswood.

Aged Care Physiotherapy Services at our Chatswood practice
The primary goal of aged care physiotherapy is to allow seniors to remain independent and enhance their quality of life by improving their physical health, strength and movement.
This form of therapy involves creating individualised exercise plans and administering hands-on techniques such as massage therapy, exercise physiology, manual therapy, and joint mobilisation.
Additionally, assistive devices like walkers, wheelchairs, and canes may be employed.
