Can I prevent a fall?
Joan discusses talking to her doctor about preventing falls
Several times I noticed that I was not walking in a straight line. At home, it seemed as if I wanted to sort of go to the right or to the left. So I mentioned it to my doctor. And she had the right answer- I have found. And that is, I needed to go to an athletic center and take exercises that would help me in that regard. And so the people, at that particular center, analyzed my gait and gave me various kinds of exercises and then prescribed a routine that would help me. I am so grateful to my doctor that she gave me that recommendation. I’m doing much better.
