Falling is very serious, especially for elderly patients. Stairs, uneven surfaces, wet floors and other tricky situations can make even the most sure footed person fall. If you add a balance disorder into the equation, falling is much more likely and can lead to very serious injury. Fall prevention addresses the risk of falling and helps decide what actions should be taken to prevent falls. Vestibular therapy is usually the first place to start. Regaining your natural balance is the best step you can take to prevent falling. However, if our physicians decide you are at an elevated risk, we can suggest additional measures to help prevent falling in your home and everyday life.
