Physical Therapist, Chad Durboraw PT,OCS from the South Jersey Rehabilitation Center in Marlton, NJ will provide a one hour informational seminar on the benefits of physical therapy for reducing your risk for falls, improving motion, and decreasing pain.
The seminar will provide basic information on how to screen for falls risk and common conditions that physical therapists treat. Falls among the elderly are prevalent, dangerous, and can diminish their ability to lead an active and independent life. According to the National Aging Council, about one in three seniors above age 65, and nearly one in two seniors over age 80, will fall at least once this year, many times with disastrous consequences.
