Falls Prevention Training
As our population is ageing, we are seeing an increasing number of older adults who have fallen. 1 in 3 people aged over 65 will fall every year.
At Portland Physiotherapy Clinic we identify that older people have specialised needs and often have more than one medical condition at any one time, which can make the assessment and management of their problem more complicated. We aim to provide a specialised assessment of patients who have fallen and provide evidence based exercise programs, education and advice aimed at reducing the risk of further falls, as well as advice on appropriate mobility aids and a balance retraining program to increase self confidence. Our aim is to help people maintain their independence and quality of life for as long as possible.
