Free Walk In Fall Screenings

Fall Risk Screening

Falls are a threat to the health of older adults and can reduce their ability to remain independent. Although falls among older adults are common, there are simple steps you can take to prevent falls and decrease falls risks. The first step in reducing falls is to identify the risk factors that may contribute to falling. Western Berks Physical Therapy offers Free Walk In Fall Risk Screenings during our normal business hours at each of our facilities.
