Fall Risk Assessment at The Northbrook YMCA
September 23, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
As people age, the number of falls and the severity of injury resulting from falls increases. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), falls are the leading cause of fatal and nonfatal injuries in people age 65 and older and one-third of falls occur in this age population. As a child, when you fell, you usually picked yourself back up easily and went about your day without a thought of lasting injury. Now as an older adult, it is likely you have more of a fear of falling that could lead to serious injury, long-term limitations, lack of confidence, and loss of independence.
Have you ever wondered how good your balance is?
Licensed physical therapist, Denise Schwartz, will be on site at The Northbrook YMCA from 9am – noon providing free fall risk/balance screenings.
