Falls are among the most common injuries, and often, they are avoidable. Did you know that your physical condition, choice of footwear, surroundings and medications can all potentially put you at risk for a fall? A balance screening can help you identify possible problems and make changes to prevent falls. Parkview Whitley Hospital offers free balance screenings by a licensed physical or occupational therapist that take less than 15 minutes. Consider having a balance screening especially if you have osteoporosis, leg weakness, a fear of falling or a history of falls, or if you experience light-headedness when you stand.
