Falls

A fall is an event that results in a person coming to rest unintentionally on the ground or floor. The risk of falls rises steadily with age and can result in a loss of mobility and independence, hospitalisation and ultimately loss of confidence.

There are many risk factors known to be involved in falls. Physiotherapists have specialist skills in assessment of these risk factors and are able to provide evidence based exercise, education and advice programmes aimed to improve balance, increase self confidence, whilst reducing fear of falling and promote active and healthy lifestyles.

Below are some helpful resources about how you can improve your balance and reduce your risk of falls.
