The term 'fall'-risk as it relates to our business doesn't evoke the spectacular colors or fun activities the season brings, but just as this time of year is an integral part of our weather cycle, a fall risk assessment is an integral part of a therapy evaluation. Fall risk assessments aren't just for "old" people. Risk factors for having a fall occurrence do include being of advanced age, but also include:

  • having previous falls
  • experiencing muscle weakness
  • having problems with gait or balance
  • poor vision, and
  • having the following conditions: arthritis, stroke, diabetes, Parkinson's or dementia.

Seeing a physical or occupational therapist can help you identify what in your surroundings or habits could be changed/modified to help avoid falls (ie: electrical cords, pets, improper shoes) as well as set up a good exercise and strengthening program to reduce your fall risk.

If you think you are a fall-risk, call us today to schedule a complimentary screening and learn how a plan of care with one of our physical or occupational therapists and help you avoid being a fall risk statistic.
