Prevention is key, and physiotherapists:

  • Assess and identify patients with high risk of falling e.g. patients with history of stroke, Parkinson’s Disease
  • Prescribe a physical conditioning programme to improve balance and reduce the risk of falls
  • Provide advice on the appropriate use of walking aids and advice on home modifications to prevent falls
