This is a beautiful time of year in Portland, Oregon. The trees are becoming more colorful, the air is freshening, and the fall season has officially arrived! On the subject of fall, let’s talk about reducing your risks for having a fall at home!
The first step for fall prevention is to identify whether you have any difficulties with balance. This online assessment tool is a great place to start: http://findingbalancealberta.ca/risk/
If your results show that you are at risk of a fall, or if you suspect your balance has been declining, give us a call and the team at Nick Rinard Physical Therapy may help you have a fall-free fall season!
