If you are at risk of falling or have a history of falls, physiotherapy can provide exercise and education to prevent falls, improve balance, increase confidence, reduce fear of falling and promote an active lifestyle.

Physiotherapists can also teach you how to get up from the ground following a fall and signpost you to other specialist services.

Why is preventing falls important?

Preventing falls is important because:

  • The risk of falls increases with age
  • As well as causing injury, falls can reduce confidence and independence
  • Risk of further falls increases after the first incident.

Why do falls happen?

Falls in hospital are the most commonly reported patient accident in the UK.

Patients can fall in hospital for many reasons. These may include

  • General weakness
  • Balance problems
  • Changes in health or recent surgery
  • Disorientation at the hospital environment
  • Effects of medication.
