Minimize Risk Of Falling

Local physical therapists Mary Kate Saunders and Mimi Bialek recommend older adults avoid falls by increasing balance, endurance, strength and flexibility.

Data from a seminar on balance indicates that a third of adults aged 65 and above fall each year and that taking four or more medications increases fall risk by 70 percent.

Saunders and Bialek, trained in balance and fall prevention, are available for appointments with a referral from any physician.
