Screenings offered for risk of falling
September is Fall Prevention Awareness Month. Your risk of falling increases when you have balance problems, muscle weakness, a history or falling, chronic disease, multiple medication use, decreased vision or hazards in the home.
Falls are the leading cause of dependence on others and death in older Americans. If you or someone you know may be at risk of falling, call The Summit Medical Fitness Center today for a free fall risk assessment.
Screenings are being offered every Thursday and Friday in September, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. The free screen consists of a balance assessment using the Biodex Balance System, and assessments for postural stability, gait stability and lower body strength.
From the screen, several recommendations and options for you or your loved one can be discussed. Call April Terry at 751-4533 to schedule an appointment.
