At FYZICAL, our Doctors of Physical Therapy will identify the cause of imbalance and target it with individualized, task-specific training in order to reduce the risk of falls and maximize balance.
Every 11 seconds an older adult is treated in the emergency room for a fall. Falls can lead to fractures and a loss of independence. During the aging process the balance systems can get weaker which leads to imbalance and immobility. You may notice that you are not confident in your ability to maintain your balance with various activities of daily life. This reduction in confidence is directly correlated with increased risk for falls. Immobility leads to a more rapid loss of independence. Your Doctor may recognize certain signs or symptoms that make you susceptible to falling. It is important to recognize these signs early to focus on prevention because falls are preventable! Our Doctors of Physical Therapy will provide you with a comprehensive fall risk assessment and determine the cause of your imbalance. The goal of treatment will be to eliminate your fall risk and maximize your independence to allow you to continue to live a safe and active lifestyle. You will be given a comprehensive exercise program that will help you maintain your balance and mobility.
