The first day of fall, September 22, 2013 is the 6th annual National Fall Prevention Awareness Day. It is a day set aside to make people of all ages aware of how to prevent falls that happen to the many seniors in this nation and in particular in our own lives. This can mean your mother, your father, your grandparent, or any older family member or friend. The best part is that falls do not have to be a part of aging and GO Physical Therapy can help you or your loved one reduce their risk with specialized physical therapy.
Did you know that falls are the leading cause of injury for seniors? While many may think that “aging” would entail medical issues to be much more common problems; however, the truth is that our aging society is accepting that taking a fall here and there just comes as part of growing older. Simply put, falling and loss of balance is not a “must” when aging and can easily be combated with specialized physical therapy.
You don’t want to have to utilize a physical therapist for something like a broken hip, knee or other issue that has been caused by a fall; especially when you can avoid falling altogether by being proactive and utilizing the many exercises and special actions that a physical therapist can help you with to avoid falls.
GO Physical Therapy makes it even easier for you if you are a senior or someone suffering from balance issues because we come to YOU! There’s no worry about traveling to a clinic for special class or course to help you strengthen the proper muscles and increase your ability to have proper balance, reducing your risk of a fall.
Our physical therapists are specially trained in providing strengthening exercises and balance improving movements to help reduce your risk of falling. Along with our special Fall Prevention Therapy, because we come to your home we can also help you spot potential issues in your home that could heighten your risk for falling in your own home. We will also discuss and talk with you about how to feel confident and comfortable when moving around, not only in your home but in public places.
Take this opportunity to celebrate National Fall Prevention Awareness Day and call our office today. BE PROACTIVE IN PREVENTING FALLS!
