People of any age can fall, anywhere and anytime.  People of over 65 years are most likely to fall and sustain more severe injuries.

Annually, a third of elderly persons sustain a fall. Common injuries include fractures of the shoulder and forearm, spinal, pelvis and hip, often resulting in patients having surgery. Bruising is often extensive, especially in the face. It takes about 6 weeks to heal from a fall, which has a huge impact on your lifestyle. Physiotherapy helps with reducing swelling and bruising, and improving joint range. Exercises help you regain your strength, balance and confidence.
