Falls are not an inevitable part of ageing.
The video below, demonstrates the timed up and go test, which helps to assess whether a person is at an increased risk of falls.
This is one way to assess a person's falls risk, but it you're concerned about falling, it is recommended you seek a full and comprehensive falls assessment from a qualified healthcare professional, such as a Physiotherapist.
If you would like to book an assessment for Falls Prevention or for any other joint or muscle issue you may have, please don't hesitate to contact us on: 01903 256 500
