Don’t Fall For Pain

Don’t Fall For Pain!

Our Reddy Care physical and occupational therapists can help prevent falls with evaluation, education, and development of individualized treatment plans including exercises to improve strength, mobility, and balance.

Many of these risk factors are preventable. As obvious as it may sound, a lack of knowledge about risk factors and how to prevent them contributes to many falls. Some people believe that falls are a normal part of aging, and as such are not preventable. Lack of knowledge leads to a lack of preventive action, resulting in falls.

 

Facts About Falling

 

Lack of Physical Activity 

Failure to exercise regularly results in poor muscle tone, decreased strength, and loss of bone mass and flexibility. All contribute to falls and the severity of injury due to falls.

Many seniors are afraid of getting up to walk or do anything active because the fear of activities that were easy to do like driving, going for walks with family, gardening and even household activities will be more difficult and falling stops them. This can lead to muscle weak muscles, less strength in legs and pelvic area and over time can lead to feeling more tired and immobility compromised. Don’t let this happen to you! You can preserve your balance and remain independent.
