To recognize this critical issue, the first week of Fall each year has been declared Fall Prevention Awareness Week.
The chances of falling and of being seriously injured in a fall increase with age.
Falls don’t “just happen,” and people don’t fall because they get older.
Often, more than one underlying cause or risk factor is involved in a fall.
The Good News is many underlying causes of falls can be treated or corrected.
In recognition of this initiative, If you or a loved one are at risk of falling please join Victory Sports Medicine and Orthopedics for a fall prevention seminar and free computerized balance screen. This presentation will take place at 6:00 pm on Wednesday September 24, 2014 at Victory Sports Medicine and Orthopedics, 791 W. Genesee Street Road, Skaneateles, NY. Snacks and refreshments will be provided. Please call at (315) 707-8892 to RSVP.
