Balance and Fall Physical Therapy
Our Balance and Fall Prevention Program allows you to gain strength and balance through activity, which in turn leads to more independence and confidence.
This program is customized to each patient and takes into account individual balance impairments and mobility levels. Medical conditions that can also impact activity abilities such as illness or injury; use of medications; or the neurological effects of stroke, Parkinson's disease, Multiple Sclerosis, or similar conditions are also considered when developing the personalized plans.
The program utilizes the Balance MasterTM, an interactive computerized system which uses visual feedback and sensitive monitoring of movements to help see what is impacting balance and mobility. This assessment and retraining tool is coupled with one-on-one instruction, and a customized program of exercises and activities to increase strength, endurance, flexibility and balance. Many participants become less reliant on walkers, canes and other assistive devices, or are able to eliminate their use entirely.
The Balance Team consists of experienced physical therapists who are balance and gait specialists. In addition, the team works closely with your primary care physician to ensure you receive the specialized care for your specific needs.
