Falls are a leading cause of serious injury, in some circumstances death, and loss of independence among the aging population. Falling, however, is not a normal age-related change. Unsteadiness could be a result of an orthopedic injury, arthritis, following a stroke, brain injury, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s Disease, or other unknown issues. Assessment by a physical therapist is key in identifying the origin of the true problem. Something as simple as a five minute conversation can begin the road to recovery and get you back in the game!
