Did you know that fear of falling is the one of biggest risk factors for future falls?
When you’re concerned about falling, you have a tendency to decrease your overall activity level, which can lead to further weakness and decreased endurance, which in turn can lead to falls.
The good news is that Physical Therapy can help!
By conducting a thorough examination of strength, walking patterns, and balance, your Physical Therapist can design an individualized plan to get you moving safely again!
What would the PT look like?
The treatments would depend on the findings of your individual evaluation. Most likely, it would increase some strengthening exercises for your legs and back, some practice with your daily activities that are challenging, some activities to improve your balance and training on your walking pattern.
