Sutton Place Physical Therapy takes Fall Prevention very seriously. All of our patients are evaluated for their “risk of falling” regardless of their reason for coming to our practice for Physical Therapy.
Falling is the second leading cause of accidental or unintentional injury deaths worldwide.
Each year an estimated 646 000 individuals die from falls and adults over 65 suffer the greatest number of falls.
Our evidence-based screen includes a history of falls, a standardized Fall Risk questionnaire , balance and gait speed tests, etc. We offer both land and aquatic physical therapy programs to make sure you or your family member does not become a statistic.
