What is fear of falling?

Fear of falling is an intense fear of falling or harming oneself when standing or walking. Falling can become a very real fear in many elderly people, which prevents them from continuing their daily activities or leaving the house. This can make people more susceptible to falls due to reduced balance and coordination, strength and exercise tolerance.

Fear of falling is more common in people who are sick and physically weak or people that have a history of falls.

Physiotherapy will improve your confidence and independence with everyday tasks and minimise the chances of falling.
