DO YOU KNOW THE # 1 CAUSE OF INJURIES FOR SENIORS?

The # 1 cause of injury for seniors is FALLS

Preventing falls starts with a good physical therapy program.

• Falls can result in hip fractures, cuts, and can even lead to serious head and brain injuries that can be fatal. 

• The thought of a fall can be frightening, even if a fall has taken place without any injuries. As a result, the fear of falling may develop and will lead to restriction in activity, which leads to deconditioning, weakness, and eventually a fall.

You’ll be treated on your own time and in your own home by a Doctor of Physical Therapy. Our therapists are experienced in treating your source of pain, or source that is contributing to your condition. A treatment plan is devised just for you, which will help to provide fast relief of pain to improve your movement and overall function.

“I had physical therapy for an atrophied leg muscle & general muscle weakness, due to inactivity, as the result of a fall. Even before the fall, muscle weakness made it difficult to transfer from the wheelchair. There had been times when I wondered if I would ever walk again, even with the aid of a walker. Since working with my therapist in the home, I have made a lot of progress toward being able to walk short distances & stand with assurance. With the therapists’ encouragement, I made greater strides than I initially expected.” —D. Calgano
