Falls and Balance Assessment and Rehabilitation

Falling and falls risk in the community is a widespread problem and can have devastating consequences for both the patient and their family. Prevention of falls in this vulnerable patient population has become an important part of managing an elderly patient. There are many reasons people fall, ranging from medical to mechanical, such as tripping on furniture or a rug. Your physiotherapist can work with your GP to determine why you are falling and help develop a management strategy for improving your falls risk.

As we get older our balance can often deteriorate, leading to an increase risk of falling. However, we can all improve our balance and balance reactions through a structured, supervised and individually designed exercise program.
