One out of three adults age 65 and older fall each year. Falls are the most common cause of non-fatal injuries and hospital admissions for trauma among the age of 65 and older. Particularly, falls cause over 90% of all broken hips in the United States.
Simply put, a fall can rob an elderly patient of their independence.
Our practice uses a unique ankle foot orthosis designed to improve gait and stability, in order to help prevent falls. This device is different in that it is light weight, easy to put on and very comfortable. It fits easily in many shoe types. The devise is custom made to the patient's foot and ankle. The results have been remarkable thus far.
If you have fallen or have had any condition that may provoke a fall, get control of your life again.
The service may be covered by your insurance and/or Medicare.
