Complimentary Fall Risk Assessment
According to the CDC, one in every three adults age 65 and older falls each year. Falls can cause moderate to severe injuries, such as hip fractures and head traumas, and can increase the risk of early death. Most falls are caused by the interaction of multiple risk factors. The more risk factors a person has, the greater their chances of falling.
How Big Is The Problem?
One out of three older adults (65 or older) falls each year however less than half talk to their healthcare providers about it. Among older adults, falls are the leading cause of both fatal and nonfatal injuries. In 2010, 2.3 million nonfatal fall injuries among older adults were treated in emergency departments and more than 662,000 of these patients were hospitalized. Our licensed physical therapists will identify your personalized risk for falling and provide you with information to prevent future debilitating falls.
