Falls are a major cause of injury and morbidity, especially in the ageing population. There are many factors involved in the occurrence of falls, but did you know that there are also many things you can do to prevent future falls? Our physiotherapists are well-trained in assessing for these factors and building an exercise program aimed at improving your overall balance, strength and ability to perform functional tasks while reducing your risk of falls. We are also able to assess and prescribe specific walking aids aimed at improving your access to community, mobility within the home setting, and reduce your overall risk of falls.
