Physiotherapist in London Specialising in Fall Prevention, Physiotherapy and Rehabilitation for the elderly
The risk of falling increases as we age. It is estimated that 30% of people aged 65 and over fall once or more annually. Half are repeat fallers and falls go up with each decade of life. These falls can have devastating effects for the individual and family but many of these falls can be avoided with a good prevention program, exercises and soft training.
Teaching older people the right exercises to strengthen their leg muscles and to work on their balance is crucial for fall prevention. Furthermore for the elderly who can, teaching them the proper way to stand up after a fall can save them from the psychological trauma and fear which often appears after the first fall. Remember prevention is the key.

Exercise and physiotherapy are the most effective ways to prevent falls. With the help of our physiotherapist and fall prevention programme we will encourage and motivate you to practice your tailor made exercise regime, which will in turn build your strength and confidence. This will in turn allow you to function with greater assurance in your everyday environment reducing the risk of falling and some of the uncertainties that come with older age. This newfound confidence in your body and mobility can empower you to become more active and enrich your social life, positively affecting your quality of life.

Your fall prevention programme will encompass a number of exercises that will concentrate on specific muscles of the body, like the abdominals, lower back, buttocks, pelvic muscles and hip girdle.
