Did you know that people who fall once are 2-3 times as likely to fall again?
Did you know that falls are the leading cause of nonfatal injuries amongst older adults?
And did you know that among the older population, falls are the leading cause of fatal injuries?
But most importantly, did you know that most falls are preventable?
Join Kyle Jones, PTA of the Yalich Clinic, as he discusses one of the most important topics in injury prevention as we get older. Fall Prevention. He will address why it is so important to prevent falling. He will go over simple ways to assess your risk of falling. And most importantly, how can we decrease the risk of falling.
Each workshop is about 1 hour and light refreshments will be served.
