Balance / Fall Prevention
Falls can result in serious medical complications including hip fractures and head injuries. In many cases, those who experience a fall have a hard time recovering and their overall health deteriorates. Statistics show that more than 40% of people hospitalized from a hip fracture do not return home and are not capable of living independently again. The good news is that, with adequate knowledge, falls can be prevented.

We comprehensively evaluate and give specific recommendations to the patient who has a history of falls or high risk of them.
