Falls are the number one cause of injury leading to hospitalisations for Australians at 42%, over half of these involve a fracture. Fall rates increase with age (over 65’s), if you’re female and most often occur in & around the home*. The good news is falls and the associated complications from them, can be prevented!
Welcome to April Falls Month.
By raising awareness, we can make a difference to the health and wellbeing of our ageing community members. Evidence drives our practice and shows regular exercise can improve your strength & balance, reducing falls risks by 23%. It only takes around 30 minutes of exercise on most days of the week.
