Falls Management Program
Surgical

Falls are the leading cause of unintentional injury in Australians 65 years and over. Falls prevention aims to break this cycle with both exercise and education to help minimise this risk. You may be suitable for a Falls Prevention/Balance Rehabilitation program if you have a history of a fall or have issues with your balance. We offer specialised programs to help you regain your independence and resume day to day activities.

What is the program? After a consultation with our Rehabiliation Specialist, an individualised program including strength and cardiovascular training will be made to help you regain independence and resume daily activities.

  • Up to 2 – 3 sessions per week
