**From the ChoosePT.com website: Falls and a fear of falling can diminish your ability to lead a full and independent life. Although 1 in every 4 older adults falls each year, falling is not a part of normal aging. You have the power to reduce your risk of falls. A physical therapist can help you do so by:
Assessing your risk for falling
Designing an individualized plan for your fall-prevention needs
Helping you make your home as safe as possible
Educating you about the medical risk factors associated with falls
Providing you with appropriate exercises and balance training
Working with other health care professionals to address any underlying medical conditions that could increase your fall risk
Providing you with recommendations on appropriate community programs
Encore Rehabilitation Physical and Occupational Therapists can help you avoid or recover from a fall. Call us for more information!
