Certain risk factors include:

Falling is a big issue for us all! Did you know that 1/3 of the population over 65 falls each year? Every 11 seconds, an older adult is rushed to the emergency room for a fall. Every 19 minutes, an older adult dies from a fall. Over 2.5 million adults were treated for nonfatal injuries in emergency departments in 2013. In older adults, falls are the leading cause of fatal and nonfatal injuries. Most people don’t think about keeping their balance “in-shape” until it is too late and they suffer a harsh fall. The good news is that most falls can easily be prevented, simply by the regular exercising of your balance system. If you have recently sustained a balance-related fall or loss of balance, then it is most important to seek the help of a specialized physical therapist immediately in order to avoid possible future injuries. It is also important for you to contact a FYZICAL physical therapist if you have any of the • Difficulty standing up from a seated position. • Difficulty standing for prolonged periods of time. • Frequent imbalance, dizziness, or unsteadiness that makes you feel as if you may fall over at any given time.

HOW WILL PHYSICAL THERAPY HELP REDUCE MY FALL RISK?

A recently published systematic review of over 100 randomized controlled trials supports exercise interventions as an effective treatment method for patients with an increased risk of falling. (The average age of patients in this review was 76, and 77% of the patients were women.) Results concluded that those who participated in exercise interventions had a 23% decrease in falls as compared to the control group. Fall risk was also reduced at 21-24%, depending on if treatments were done in individual or group settings. The risk of fall-related fractures was decreased by 27% and the number of falls that required medical attention was decreased by 39%. Concluding statements from the authors demonstrated how overall, “Exercise reduces both the rate of falls…and the number of people experiencing falls.” At FYZICAL, your initial evaluation will consist of several parts to better determinewhatyourmostproblematic factorsare.Thesewill includecentral and peripheral nervous system tests, inner ear tests, vision tests, BERTEC Computerized Assessment of the balance systems, and evaluations of your gait, joint range of motion, and overall and specific muscle strength. Based on the results of this evaluation, your physical therapist will design a treatment plan around ‘your’ specific needs. These plans are aimed first and foremost at reducing your risk of falling, and to aid you in improving balance, strength, flexibility, endurance, and overall movement. Some common forms of treatment include: • Pain management: If pain is getting in the way of your balance then it will be one of the first things addressed in your treatment plan. Your physical therapist will want to make sure that your treatments are as comfortable as possible. • Walking and moving programs: Thispartofyour treatmentplan isaimed at getting you back to your normal movement function when walking.

• Balance training: Balance is a large part of fall prevention, as lack of stability is one of the main reasons why falls occur. Your physical therapist will design a balance training plan for you as part of your treatment. • Strength training: Strength training is typically paired with your balance training. Your physical therapist will design a strength training plan for you, which will focus on specific muscle groups in need of improvement. • Endurance training: Endurance training is all about working up to more advanced levels of the same form of treatment. Your physical therapist will provide you with an aerobic exercise program and will slowly add on time to those exercises as your endurance improves. Are you ready to get back on your feet by improving your balance and decreasing your risk of sustaining a fall-related injury? Contact FYZICAL to schedule a consultation and get started today!
