According to the CDC, every second of every day, an adult age 65 or older suffers a fall in the U.S. In fact, falls are the leading cause of injury in this age group. The injuries sustained can be substantial, resulting in broken bones, hip fractures, and even death. For many, one fall takes away the ability to remain living independently. It doesn’t have to be this way. What if you knew you could be at risk for falling and take preventative measures to protect yourself and your lifestyle? With Maragal Medical, you can.
Stay on Your Feet
Living with an increased risk for falls isn’t something you have to accept as part of the aging process. Even if you feel steady today, there are many steps you can take to reduce your risk of falling, including:
- Working with your doctor if you feel unsteady to uncover the root cause
- Review your medications to ensure there aren’t side effects that could be causing your unsteadiness
- Have your eyes evaluated and ensure your eyeglass prescription is up-to-date
- Wear proper footwear
- Stay active through balance-enhancing exercises
- Keep your home safe by ensuring there are adequate handrails
- Sign up for a free fall assessment with Maragal Medical
Get a Free Balance Screening
Maragal Medical is offering a free fall prevention screening for Medicare patients from January through March 2022. Using our one-of-a-kind Hunova® Technology, we can evaluate your postural control, strategy, muscle strengthening, balance, core stability and help you predict if you are at risk of a fall.
Utilizing Hunova’s Silver Index, we can simulate the different conditions that could cause a fall in controlled ways, highlighting areas that need attention to protect you.
With that knowledge, our team can help you prevent future falls by creating a personalized rehabilitation program to improve flexibility, strength, and balance. Whether it’s back pain, neuropathy, arthritis, or weakness that is causing you to be at higher risk for falls, Maragal Medical can help. We are a full-service clinic, with medical care, chiropractic, and physical therapy all under one roof, treatments that are often covered by Medicare.
