Introducing Physica Falls and Balance

Falls are a major issue in our ever-aging community. They typically affect a person’s mobility and confidence. They are one of the predominant reasons for elderly isolation and can often result in loss of independence and adversely affect one's quality of life. The fantastic thing is that in many cases, falls risk can be reduced and falls prevented. In most cases, people show a very rapid improvement in function and independence when guided through appropriate exercises and falls prevention strategies.

Tailored Falls Sessions

Our clinic runs very successful falls and balance program. Clients are assessed and either managed individually or encouraged to join one of our falls and balance classes. Improving balance involves correction of strength, coordination, and gait impairments, education about falls prevention, and prescription and advice for safe use of gait aids. We often work with other professionals such as your doctor to review medication, optometrists for visual assessments, and podiatrists for footwear and diabetes management.

All sites undertake balance assessments and can assist in balance retraining. Formal balance classes are offered weekly. Contact your nearest clinic to find out more information on class times.
