One in four Americans aged 65+ falls each year, and each fall has the potential for injuries that impact an individual’s long-term health and longevity, independence, and ability to participate in life with their family and friends. But fortunately, falls are largely preventable! There are many well-known risk factors for falling, and early treatment of those factors can reduce an individual’s potential for falls. IRG therapists are here to help people of all ages feel comfortable, steady and empowered to move independently and pain-free.
