Falls Prevention Physiotherapy: Information
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.
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.
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.
