Falls continue to be the leading cause of injury-related hospitalizations among 20-30% of seniors in Canada. It can lead to fractures, surgeries, brain injuries, loss of independence, various mental health issues and mortality. One way physiotherapists can prevent falls is to perform a series of balance tests to assess whether you are at risk for falling. Based on your performance, we can provide you with ways to manage your home environment, prescribe balance training or an assistive device (Four wheeled walker/cane) that can help with prolonged ambulation. We also provide rehabilitation care after surgery or hospital stay.
