Physical Therapy for Alzheimer's Disease - Health Channel


Physical Therapy for Alzheimer’s Disease |

Memory loss, trouble doing familiar tasks, problems with language, confusion about time and place, poor judgment, and misplacing things are some of the most common symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease.

Haronyd Melo Nunez, PT, Manager of Rehab Services at West Kendall Baptist Hospital, explains they won’t see someone in physical therapy strictly for Alzheimer’s, but what will happen is that if someone is forgetting to take their blood pressure medication, for example, that can lead to having a stroke, so they do physical therapy to help them dealing with those symptoms of Alzheimer’s.
