Our expert physiotherapists can assess the risk of falls especially as we become older using physical tests and evidence based scientific assessments.
The most common risk factors for falls in older people are muscular weakness, balance disorders and a history of previous falls.
Strength and balance training can reduce the number of falls & injuries from falls by 40%. These exercises are used for rehabilitation and general fitness. Following detailed assessment by one of our physiotherapists a specific exercise programme can be diagnosed for use at home or in a small class setting if preferred.
These programmes help you or your relative maintain or regain confidence after an adverse accident or even a period of ill health. Advice as to the best mobility aids and measures to prevent falls at home are part of the programme.
Our goal is to keep you safe & healthy, prevent fractures and promote mobility and independence at home.
