Physical Therapy In Home For Fall Risk Patients


In today’s aging society falls among elderly patients happen too often. Mizuta & Associates Physical Therapists assess patients in their homes or retirements communities to make sure patients are educated on how to fall properly, how to get up from a fall easily, and most importantly, how to prevent the fall. Therapists will review the patient’s medical history and evaluate the current situation with balance using standardized tests and measurements. PTs will work with patients to safeguard their homes and may recommend handles or certain equipment that would make getting up from the floor easier. Working on balance takes practice and repetition. Mizuta PT’s physical therapists work with our geriatric patients to build confidence and improve mobility. Falling can change your life, and Mizuta & Associates Physical Therapy is here to help prevent it.
