Balance and Falls
Are You Living With, OR Worried About Someone Suffering from a Loss of Balance?
If You or a Loved One Suffers from Poor Balance Then Reading This Page is a MUST.
You are not alone.
Do you want to be a part of statistics like these?
I think you're probably saying no!
Falls are the main cause of injury among seniors in Canada. Every year, it is estimated that one out of every three seniors aged 65 and up will fall at least once. Falls are also a leading cause of injury-related hospitalizations among the elderly.
In 2011, an estimated 5 million Canadians aged 65 and above, accounting for 15% of the population. In the following 25 years, this population is predicted to quadruple, reaching 10.47 million seniors by 2036.
Many falls do not result in injuries, but one in five results in significant damage such as broken bone or a concussion. Such injuries might make it difficult for a person to move around, carry out daily tasks, or live independently. In addition, wrist, arm, ankle, and hip fractures are common bone injuries caused by falls.
If you, your spouse, or a parent has trouble falling, you should seek assistance as soon as possible. An average person's quality of life can be drastically altered by a fall. Unfortunately, seniors who are harmed in a fall are unlikely to fully recover. Chronic pain, reduced mobility, loss of independence and confidence, and a poor quality of life are all common symptoms.
With the right physiotherapy exercises, you can build your balance and movement reflexes to catch yourself. Unfortunately, there is no quick treatment for balance disorders; rehabilitation is a process that requires time. When someone falls, they often have a fear of falling again, increasing their chance of falling. You will get weaker, lack endurance, and have slow, uncertain motions due to your anxiety, which will set you up for another fall.
At Nose Creek Physiotherapy, we can help you conquer your “Fear of Falling” with a well-designed balancing programme suited to your specific needs.
Our FREE Report outlines eight techniques for lowering your risk of falling. Make sure to get a copy of it as soon as possible.
If you have a loved one who does not have access to a computer, simply call the clinic at (587) 355-2738 and we will mail a copy of the FREE report to them.
“How do you solve balance problems?” people frequently ask. My response is that it is not straightforward. We must first learn about the person's medical history before doing a physiotherapy assessment to determine which modifiable risk factors they require assistance with. Then, we go through a comprehensive checklist, and the answers help us build a therapy plan for enhancing their balancing abilities.
In the FREE REPORT, we split it into internal risk factors (your body) and external (your environment).
Internally, there are four risk factors. Flexibility, strength, medication reactions, and vision are the four factors.
There are external dangers to consider. My top ten fall hazards and how to avoid them are listed below. Two significant risk factors are proper illumination and bathroom renovations.
Again, make sure to obtain the free 21-page report to begin learning how to heal yourself before coming to our clinic.
I haven't even touched on all the reasons why people fall!
If you can't hear potential fall hazards due to a lack of hearing, you're more likely to fall. We didn't go over VERTIGO, which is another cause of falls caused by inner ear issues.
Another area of concern is foot pain and correct footwear. But, again, I could go on forever.
Because balance has multiple origins, we'll need to chat to you and run some tests to figure out the ROOT CAUSES of your fall issues. So before deciding how to best tackle your problems, we'll run through a series of tests to rule out the causes of your falls.
