Mobility Problems and Ageing

Very few people have the perfect walking pattern but for some people their walking pattern can result in mobility problems.

Walking problems result from:

  • weakness
  • stiffness
  • poor balance – resulting in regular falls and injury with loss of confidence or
  • poor posture
  • pain in your joints
  • poor patterns of movement


Poor walking or mobility will result in:

  • poor walk pattern which is tiring
  • regular falls and injury
  • loss of confidence 
  • an inefficient walking pattern

What Our Clients Say

In August 2018 my amazing 94 year old uncle fell at his care home where he has been living for 2 years. He was admitted to Pinderfields hospital where they discovered a fractured hip.

After spending 10 days in hospital with no physiotherapy, he was discharged back to the care home. When I asked when physios would be visiting I was told there was a 6 week waiting list on the NHS. By that time I realised uncle would never walk again without urgent physio.

Within the week Will from Tops was visiting uncle weekly and within 2 weeks he was up and walking again, with the help of a Zimmer.

Will is a lovely young man and had a good rapport with uncle and they got on very well. I would recommend tops to anyone, their prompt service, kindness and compassion is second to none! !
