Balance & Fall Prevention
Your body has a sophisticated system that keeps your balance as you engage in the various activities that you need and want to participate in. This system is comprised of visual input, organs in your inner ear that assess and evaluate the position of your head and spine, and receptors in your muscles and joints that provide information on the position of your limbs in space. All of this information is processed in your brain to keep your body safe and upright as you move throughout your life. Problems with this system can lead to falls resulting in significant injuries and a fear of being unable to fully participate in the world around you. Our physical therapists are trained experts in your body’s balance system and can effectively evaluate, diagnose, and treat your impairments. Some of the methods that our therapists use to analyze and treat your specific balance impairment include: Bertec, Gait Analysis, Fall Prevention and Balance Retraining, Fitness and Wellness Programs Dizziness & Vestibular Rehab, and Geriatric Therapy.
