The Imperial Physical Therapy (IPT) believes prevention is the best method to reduce or eliminate fall related injuries. There are strategies that can help seniors living safer and independent.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, "Each year, millions of older people—those 65 and older—fall. In fact, more than one out of four older people falls each year, but less than half tell their doctor. Falling once doubles your chances of falling again." Falls can lead to moderate to severe injuries, such as hip fractures and head traumas.

The National Safety Council says "Because the natural aging process can affect vision, strength and balance, adults 65 and older are at elevated risk for falls, however falls are not a natural part of aging and can be prevented."

By reviewing and applying the following basic steps you may reduce fall related injuries.
