About Our Falls Prevention

Falls are the leading cause of fatal and nonfatal injuries in older adults.  Our team understands that falls prevention is a critical  important part of ensuring your long-term health and wellbeing. 

As we age, falls pose increasing risks to our health. Nearly 1 out of 5 falls cause a serious injury such as a broken bone or a head injury. Additionally, many older adults who fall develop a fear of falling and reduce their activity. This increases their risk for falling. Falls can lead to a loss of independence and ability to perform everyday activities. 

From personalized physical therapy assessment to comprehensive mediation review and tai chi classes, we provide a comprehensive approach to reduce patients’ fall risk through services and programs that improve patient balance, strength, and overall health.
