JOIN US FOR THE NEXT FALLS FREE FRIDAY!

Incontinence – Common but Never Normal

Friday, March 19, 9-10 am

Numerous studies have linked urinary incontinence with an increased risk of falling and a variety of factors can contribute. Both women and men can have stress incontinence where leakage occurs with physical movement or activity. Hysterectomy and prostate cancer surgery can weaken the muscles that support the bladder and urethra increasing the risk of incontinence. How can physical therapy potentially help?

On the third Friday of each month join us for a new speaker addressing a wide range of issues that will help our community age well and prevent falls.

A FEW KEY STATISTICS

A progressive loss of muscle mass occurs starting at age 40 and loss can continue to increase each decade.


3 out of 4 adults
who are hospitalized after a fall either die or require long term care.

The top 5 causes of falls in the Fox Valley include: tripping/stumbling, falling from a chair, falling down steps, falling from a height (off of a roof/object), and falling off of ladders.
