How can you prevent falls in wet weather?

 

As the weather conditions deteriorate, more frequent rainy days increase the risk of you having a fall when walking on slippery outdoor surfaces. Added to that, with it being flu season, should you become ill, the fatigue flu brings can impact your sense of balance, which can also increase the risk of falling over. Should a bad fall occur, needing to be admitted to hospital at a time where COVID cases are common and hospital beds have limited availability, puts you at even further risk.

A traumatic brain injury case study

 

If you’re wondering how the work we do differs from other physiotherapists, one example is our client, Yusef (aged 59). Yusef sustained a severe traumatic brain injury about 10 years before we started working with him. His long hospital admission resulted in left-sided weakness, and Yusef needing 24-hour care in supported accommodation. He was able to stand up briefly, with a lot of support from two people holding him up, which was really hard for him and not something he enjoyed or wanted to do. He was also suffering with a lot of back pain and felt very scared of falling.
