Did you know that one in five falls causes a serious, life-long injury? Sadly, for most people, a fall or tumble can lead to life-long pain that never heals. Yet, we accept losing our balance as a consequence of getting older. Nothing we can do about it other than walk with a cane and hope for the best.
It’s even worse if you’ve already suffered a fall, with the likelihood of you falling again almost tripling putting you at even greater risk for injury. But it doesn’t have to be that way.
Preventing weakness is essential to maintaining proper balance and giving yourself the best chance to avoid a fall that could jeopardize your health. And for those who have already fallen, rebuilding your strength, balance, and confidence is important to getting back out there and conquering those fears you may have of falling yet again. Physical therapy aims to pinpoint the weaknesses and improve balance to keep you healthy and confident as you live your life.
At Moss Rehabilitation Center, we pride ourselves on giving the best care we can to all of our patients who have suffered a fall here in Springtown, TX. We want to transform the lives of our patients by quickly getting them out of pain and back to normal naturally using The MAGICAL 5 Step Healing Process.
