Fall Prevention Screening
The MRHC Physical Therapy department will also be hosting a fall prevention screening on Saturday October 14th from 8-11am. Anyone who has concerns of falling, has fallen in the past, is fearful of falling, or is using a device to prevent falls is encouraged to attend.
“We will spend time interviewing individuals about their fall history followed by evidence-based tests that are predictive of fall risk,” said MRHC Therapy Director, Taylor Nelson, DPT.
Based on the results of the tests, participants will work with a physical therapist to determine appropriate next steps to reduce their fall risk with physical therapy treatment and schedule follow-up appointments. Attendees can anticipate this initial consultation to take 15-20 minutes.
Physical therapy for fall prevention is covered by Medicare and referrals are not needed. Call (712) 655-8298 to find out more or schedule an appointment.
