Reduce Falls and Increase:
As a clinician who has worked in skilled nursing, home health, acute, and transitional care, I’ve seen and treated too many patients who experience falls. In the past, I focused too much of my attention on strengthening the low extremity or solely on home modification, which resulted in seeing minimal gains. What was I missing? There had to be a better way to treat this population. Finally, I discovered that by examining the myriad causes to falls – psychological, physiological, visual, and neuromuscular – I could effectively treat my patients by improving functional and occupational performance and giving them confidence with mobility in their home and community.
In this lab-intensive recording, learn and practice the evidence-based tools I use to help prevent falls. Feel confident and comfortable using these proven strategies that immediately carry over into your clinical setting.
