Fall Prevention in St. Louis, MO

Posted by

First lecture in a series of talks that I will be giving in St. Louis about fall prevention.  As a trained podiatrist, I can provide patients with proper evaluation and treatment of foot problems including diabetes and neuropathy.  With neuropathy being a big risk factor of falls and balance problems, I can provide my patients with a balance tachnology to prevent falls.

Falls have cause significant financial stress on the federal government and cost in 2000 have been $19 billion for non fatal falls and $175 million of fatal falls.  Hopefully, we can start today to reduce that cost.  If you have a history of falls or feel unstable and have Medicare for your health insurance, you may be eligible for this treatment at no cost to you.  Find out more by contacting us at 1800-707-0215.  You can also visit this site about the Moore Balance brace.
