Fall Prevention ProgramSanford Luverne Medical Center has a fall prevention program designed to identify individuals who are at risk for falling and to provide a treatment program that enhances safe mobility within the home and the community. Based on a client's risk for falling, an outpatient physical therapy program and/or a home exercise program will be implemented. Therapy treatment may include activities to increase strength, flexibility, and balance. Recommendations will be made, as needed, for assistive devices (walker, cane, etc.) and home modifications.

Our therapists are held to the highest ethical standards, as they are all members of national professional organizations.
