Fall Prevention

Physiotherapy Matters understand the importance of staying active and exercising regularly as you age. As we get older, our muscle strength and balance reduces, which contributes to an increased risk of falls.

For residents who are unable to visit our clinic, we can come in and offer them private treatment.
