Shropshire Falls Therapy Service

Description:

Shropshire Community Health NHS Trust’s Falls Therapy Service is a specialist team of Falls Prevention Practitioners, including physiotherapists, occupational therapists, nurses and rehab technicians, aiming to reduce the number of falls and fall-related injuries.

The Service offers assessments to people who are living in Shropshire and registered with a Shropshire GP, who have fallen, are at risk of falling, or are fearful of falling.  Assessments will be in a clinic setting and are aimed at trying to find out what is making you more likely to fall.

Referrals are accepted from health care professionals.  All referrals should be directed via the Falls Therapy Service.

The service is generally for over 65s, but younger adults identified at risk will be assessed and treated according to their individual need.

A progressive strength and balance Exercise Programme is available.  These programmes are held throughout the year in:

  • Bridgnorth
  • Culmington (Ludlow)
  • Oswestry
  • Shrewsbury
  • Wem.

For more information, please follow the link to visit their website.
