Happy Fall!

Let’s learn how to prevent a fall this fall!

Why fall prevention is important.

Falls are a major threat to the health and independence of older adults, people aged 65 and older. Each year in the United States, nearly one-third of older adults experience a fall.

Usually two or more risk factors interact to cause a fall (such as poor balance and low vision, which can cause a trip and fall going up a single step). Home or environmental risk factors play a role in about half of all falls. Understanding these risk factors is the first step to reducing older adult falls.

Effective fall interventions reduce fall risk factors through either exercise alone or by combining exercise with other risk reduction approaches.

Physical Therapy can help with reducing falls through education, assessment, exercise & home safety programs.

Kudos for Sarah @ the West Chester Clinic!

Sarah Knab2

When I chose Excel for helping with a hamstring injury, I became Sarah’s patient. In her excellent care, I was feeling positive results within a couple of weeks. I’m now on my own but continue to try and maintain Sarah’s efforts with the home exercise program she gave me with all the prescribed exercises.

I can work all day on my property without pain. Physical therapy has been a noninvasive godsend for me. I call this a success story!

Thank you Sarah & Excel!

Sincerely,

Karen W.
