Health & Safety Committee Presents Fall Prediction and Prevention

May 16 @ 2:30 PM - 4:00 PM

Sea Trail Health & Safety Committee presents EmergeOrtho Physical Therapist, Dr. Megan Lee, who will address how to avoid falls and other tips to stay safe in your home.

Title:  Fall Prediction and Prevention: Roughly one-third of older adults fall at least once in 12 months with the risk of subsequent falls as high as 50%. Injuries sustained by falls can lead to high healthcare costs and a sequela of decline, including mortality. This discussion will review our balance systems and the effect of aging on these systems. We’ll review the literature on fall risk predictors and options to maximize prevention. We’ll discuss a physical therapist’s role and what a typical physical therapy evaluation and treatment might look like, including some of the common tests used in the office to identify fall risk as well as age-appropriate norms for these tests.
Speaker:  Megan Lee,  BS MS PT  Megan Lee is staff Physical Therapist at EmergeOrtho at the Shallotte Location.  Received a combined  BS/MS from Russell Sage College in Troy, New York in 2002.  She has worked at Bassett Healthcare in Oneonta , NY for 21 years until relocating to North Carolina.
