Home visits and treatment for older adults in Cambridge

Over the age of 65, one in three of us will experience a fall and once this has happened the chances are that we will have another within a year.

The consequences can extend beyond physical injury. A loss of confidence can have a significant impact on independence, social activity and general wellbeing.

Individualised physiotherapy assessment at home

There are many reasons why we are more likely to fall as we age. Usually it’s not down to one thing but a combination of factors and a specialist falls physiotherapist should investigate all the potential causes before recommending an effective approach to treatment.
