Fall prevention is a multi-faceted issue that may be impacted by your medications or the correct use of your medication. Falls result from physical surroundings; frayed rugs, missing tiles in your floor, poor lighting, and many other reasons that are under your control. We do an assessment to determine your risk of falls starting with your physical reactions to getting up from your chair or rolling out of bed, do you feel dizzy or lightheaded? Oftentimes this is one of the first signs of risk for falling. Do you touch the wall as you walk down the hall or perhaps use furniture as leverage to get where you want to go? It may be that assistive devices are needed or an exercise plan to build up your strength for transitioning from sitting to standing, to walking. All of these will be considered in conjunction with your physician to avoid the first fall or recover afterward.
