If you notice you are unsteady or have experienced a fall, Beaumont Rehab can help. Our goal is to reduce the fear of falling and improve health and fitness.
Several factors related to age can contribute to falls, including:
- decreased vision and depth perception
- slowed reflexes
- decreased muscle strength and range of motion
- decreased hearing
- postural changes
These age-related changes can reduce sensory information and the speed of appropriate balance reaction. Individuals are also at higher risk of falling if they have a fear of falling, have had a fall in the past six months or multiple falls in the past
