The therapy that is mainly associated with the physical disabilities of elderly people is known as geriatric physical therapy. This includes helping the elderly who are suffering from some major physical disability and making them capable of moving their body parts in a usual manner as others. Geriatric physical therapy is for older adults to improve physical ability, their balance and strength, build their confidence, and remain active. Physical therapy can also help older adults to avoid falls, and to maintain their independence for long time.
Review articles are the summary of current state of understanding on a particular research topic. They analyze or discuss research previously published by scientist and academicians rather than reporting novel research results.
Review article comes in the form of systematic reviews and literature reviews and are a form of secondary literature. Systematic reviews determine an objective list of criteria, and find all previously published original research papers that meet the criteria. They then compare the results presented in these papers. Literature reviews, by contrast, provide a summary of what the authors believe are the best and most relevant prior publications.
The concept of "review article" is separate from the concept of peer-reviewed literature. It is possible for a review to be peer-reviewed, and it is possible for a review to be non-peer-reviewed.
