At one point in our lives, we have slipped, tripped and fall. A surprising fact is that falling and its related injuries are among the most common reason for a hospital visit for both children and adults. The act of falling becomes more frequent in our later life stages. With this, we can expect more visits to the hospital but New Beginning Physical Therapy has a way to avoid this. Occupational therapy allows physical therapists at New Beginning Physical Therapy help you avoid falling.
While in the act of falling, the body is thrown off balance. The body reacts to this scenario by positioning itself using a series of specific reactions. These reactions help the body keep itself from falling. Muscular diseases, accidents, growing older are some factors that make the body begin to lose control of the aforementioned reactions. The bodily reactions become slow and less responsive. This puts us in a dangerous situation as we suffer from an increased risk of falls.
The New Beginning Physical Therapy fall prevention program is specially tailored to help patients maintain and increase their reactions to avoid falling.
