Medical Monday: Fall prevention


MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – When you get older, sometimes you can’t always live the same life you used to.

Your body begins to fail you, and your balance may not be what it once was.

Kathleen McKinney is a physical therapist at the Rehabilitation Hospital, Navicent Health.

She treats patients who are in danger of falling through strengthening muscles and giving confidence.

She joins 41NBC with more about preventing falls.
