Fall Prevention and Walking Analysis
The fear of falling is a devastating reality for a lot of our geriatric clients. As we age our system becomes less efficient and ‘righting the ship’ becomes more difficult- falls tend to increase. Approximately 10% of all emergency department visits are secondary to a fall. Our goal is to help you become more comfortable on your feet and lessen the risk of falling.
If you are leaning too far forward or have a shuffled gait, it is difficult to prevent yourself from falling. Our walking analysis program works hand in hand with fall prevention. The treatment approach will include functional activities and gait training, which will be combined with a home exercise program to guarantee long term results.
