Falls Prevention Physiotherapy: Information

The risks of falls increases with age/aging, and there is a greater risk for women than compared with men. Every twelve months, 33 of 100 people aged 65 and above, sustains a fall, and of these 33, 22 of them will have an incident again within another six months period. It is the leading cause of death in people aged above 65 years old. 10% of the time, they cause hip fractures, and 25 of 100 of hip fracture patients die. This can be caused by infections within the wounds, the lungs etc. 25% of those with hip fractures need life-long medical and nursing help. 50% of elderly are sent to a nursing home instead of going back to their own homes after the incidences.

These are some reasons why we're very concerned on falls prevention and management. Actually, we're also very concerned about the biggest and most profound effect - the loss of independent mobility and/or function, be it actual or because of psychological fear.

30% of elderly living in the community over- and unnecessarily restrict their own activities, mobility and traveling because of fear - this causes their muscles to reduce in strength, stamina and stability, heightening the risk in the long run. And then they start to trip and their knees starts to buckle more, and they restrict their mobility even more...you see where it's headed here? It then becomes a vicious cycle, on the negative. This problems can be managed with proper care and on-going treatments. We often see too many of our patients coming after the operations and the incidences, we would like to prevent more of these incidences from happening in the first place rather than simply treat the symptoms post injuries.

We provide physiotherapy services to recondition the elderly to prevent and managed risks, and provide exercise therapy, home visits and modification, as well as prescribe exercises and equipment to help them.

Seek help from your family physician to get a referral to a physiotherapy center near you, it may very well save you and/your family's life, emotional and financial resources in the long run.
