Did you know: Falls are the #1 cause of injury-related deaths in seniors?

On average, every 10 minutes a senior is hospitalized because of a fall, contributing to over 90% of hip and wrist fractures and 60% of head injuries among this age group.  Most of these deaths and injuries can be prevented with evidence-based effective interventions.

We have compiled a list of resources and links from organizations, like ours, that are dedicated to reducing falls and fall related injuries.

We at Physio in the Valley have developed a personalized system (assessment and home or in clinic exercises) to give you your strength, mobility and balance back and let you live your life in a confident way! Clients who have attended this program have been extremely happy with their outcomes and improved quality of life.

Give us a call to book your interview/assessment today and take back control of your function. 613-635-4777
