Falls are the leading cause of injury and death in people over age 65. An injury or fall can be debilitating to an individual and costly. Through these screens, we can identify whether a person is at risk of injuries or falling, and we can help make recommendations to minimize or prevent dangerous falls. These screenings can determine whether physical therapy will help with strength and stability. Research shows that PT helps injury prevention and decreases falls. Emergency room visits and hospitalizations are lowest for patients who have had physical therapy sessions to know how to manage fall risks.
