Should I See a Geriatric Specialist?
Preventative measures are always more effective than reactive measures. It’s important to maintain your health at all ages, but when you are approaching retirement, it’s time to closely examine your health. Preventing falls, injuries, and health-related conditions can be easy with proper screening for vision, hearing, balance, and wellness. It’s important to take steps to prevent fractures by treating osteoporosis and physical therapeutic conditioning.
