A Physiotherapist can help the patients with recurrent falls by assessing the Mobility and home environment. The Physio can advise on mobility aids and Equipments such as walkers, frames, toilet aids, bed mobility aids, rails and grab bars, etc. to help patient mobilise safer and improve quality of life.
This is very important as falls could lead to serious injuries and prolonged hospital admissions.
Your Physio can provide home exercise programme to help you regain muscle strength and balance. The Home Exercise program can also help to improve blood circulation in legs and reduce swelling and pain commonly experienced by elderly people due to lack of mobility and other medical conditions.
