Aim: To find out the factors to exercise adherence following physiotherapy interventions in older adults 60years and above. Objectives: To identify the factors for adherence to physiotherapy treatment among elderly and find out the reasons for non - adherence by questionnaire method. Materials and method: The study was descriptive, conducted in 2020 - 2021. A total of 100 subjects (61males, 39females) were surveyed using a questionnaire. [1] for information. The adherence to physiotherapy treatment among them was found out. Results: 72% of the sample population was adhering to physiotherapy treatment.
