Today is Fall Prevention Awareness Day.
As we age and our body changes, the possibility of falls and what that can mean about living your best life is ever-present. Falling is not a normal part of aging and there are things you can do in your home to stay safe including exercise, home safety modifications, and even physical therapy!
A fall can be painful and lead to both a loss of your independence and limit your ability to move around normally and pain-free. But you can diminish your possibility of falling by working with a physical therapist who can recommend specific activities (such as stretches and exercises) to improve your balance and strength.
Our Max Health and Wellness physical therapists can come to wherever you call home and assess your needs and your risk factors. Among other things, they can develop a plan for you that will help prevent falls by doing a home assessment to make sure your home is as safe as possible.
And if you are struggling with a physical issue that (1) inhibits your ability to move normally and without pain and (2) are home-bound or are concerned with traveling outside your home to receive treatment, our skilled, compassionate, and licensed physical therapists can come to wherever you call home and work with you to help you become stronger and live independently and safely.
Our at-home physical therapists may be exactly who you need to help you stay safe and help with your healing process. And in-home physical therapy may be covered by Medicare when prescribed by your physician.
If you or an aging loved-one is considering Physical Therapy at Home in East Brunswick, NJ, please contact the caring staff at Max Health & Wellness today. (732) 576-3550
