We Can Help You Stay on Your Feet
BALANCE PHYSICAL THERAPY
WE CAN IMPROVE YOUR BALANCE, BY UP TO 25-40%
As we age, may of our balance systems don't work like the used to. But study after study shows these systems can be "tuned up". We can help you make these changes to accomplish your goals and reduce your overall risks. A 25-40% change has been documented in the Physical Therapy literature, and we are seeing these results at the Balance Center.
THERE ARE 17+ FACTORS CONTRIBUTING TO YOUR FALL RISK, WE LOOK INTO ALL OF THEM
Did you know that difficulty walking increases your relative risk of falls by 2.2 times? How about that if you experience dizziness you are 2.0 times more likely to fall? Difficulty with vision increases your risk by 2.3 times, have you had your vision checked? At the Balance Center we do a complete evaluation of all systems that could be related to your fall risk and then come up with strategies and treatments to mitigate your risk.
WE CAN PROVIDE A "BALANCE SCORE" THAT CAN PREDICT FALL RISK AND HELP WITH DECISION MAKING
We know that 1 in 3 adults over 65 will fall every year. We can take this 33% baseline chance and then calculate an individualized score describing your risk of falling after our comprehensive testing. We can track your score from your initial visit and throughout your journey with us. Your score will be a valuable tool when making decisions about your course of therapy and overall health.
