SARASOTA, Fla., Sept. 2, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Of the companies' rapid growth, Matt DiMauro of FYZICAL's senior leadership team said, "Everyone who has joined in our mission to protect Americans from preventable injury is dedicated to improving patient lives. I'm proud of our accomplishments and optimistic about the future of this healthcare organization."
FYZICAL is an innovator in fall prevention, offering state of the art balance programs across the country, leading to better outcomes for patients with vestibular disorders.
On September 22nd, National Falls Prevention Awareness Day, FYZICAL centers are offering free Fall Risk Assessments that identify compromises in balance, flexibility and strength that could make someone susceptible to a fall and next steps to help prevent future falls.
So, what drives the company's mission for fall prevention?
- 1/3 of the population over 65 falls each year
- Every 13 seconds, an older adult is treated in the ER for a fall
- Every 20 minutes an adult in America dies from a fall
- Falls are the leading cause of both fatal and non-fatal injuries among older adults
Simply the fear of falling can be terrifying, leading to a less active lifestyle adding to the issue. Contrary to popular assumptions, falling is not an inevitable part of aging. With individualized exercise and balance therapy, Americans can put their foot down to falls.
FYZICAL's centers have had an extremely large impact in the United States in the past year, preventing an estimated 16,875 falls, 112 deaths and saving over $103 million in health care costs for our country based on the number of balance patients seen at FYZICAL's 166 centers.
The organization is quickly leading the charge to transform healthcare from one of "sick care" to "well care" by providing services focused on quality outcomes, total well-being, and prevention.
"We focus on well-care as a preventive measure instead of sick-care because the time to strengthen the patient and improve their balance is before a life threatening fall occurs, not after." - Dr. Daniel Deems, M.D., Ph.D., FACS, Chief Medical Officer, FYZICAL Therapy & Balance Centers.
FYZICAL provides physical therapists and MD's with the business expertise & guiding principles to run a profitable private practice so they can focus on improving outcomes in patients with balance and vestibular disorders.
