Did You Know?
1/3 of the population over 65 falls each year.
In patients over 75, imbalance is the #1 reason for a doctor visit.
Falls account for 25% of all hospital admissions.
Falls are the #1 cause of fractures.
Falls account for 40% of all nursing home admissions.
At least half of the overall U.S. population is affected by a balance or vestibular disorder sometime during their lives.
Approximately 15 out of every 1000 individuals consult their family physician each year with complaints of vertigo, dizziness, or imbalance; half the individuals over the age of 65 will develop positional vertigo.
Of all falls suffered by the elderly, 50% are reported to be the result of vestibular problems.
In approximately 15% of vestibular patients, the cause cannot be recognized.
Vestibular dysfunction is a prominent part of balance disorders, particularly in the elderly, and is a significant source of morbidity.
It has been estimated that 65% of individuals older than 60 years of age experience dizziness or loss of balance, often on a daily basis.
Dizziness is a common symptom affecting about 30% of people over the age of 65.
Approximately 12.5 million Americans over the age of 65 have a dizziness or balance problem that significantly interferes with their lives.
In the US, the estimated cost of medical care for patients with balance disorders exceeds $1 billion annually.
Dizziness can be difficult to diagnose, particularly in elderly persons, in whom it often represents dysfunction in more than one body system.
Many cases of dizziness are actually neurological.
Our balance programs focus on strength, endurance, motion, gait training and coordination for safe walking and preventing falls. If you need the assistance of a cane or walker, FYZICAL therapists will match you with the appropriate device and provide training for safety.
At FYZICAL, our therapists realize how important balance and walking is for independent living, as well as for work activities, exercise, sports and enjoying life in general.

BodyQ is an integrated testing program addressing movement, function, general health, vision, hearing, balance, and performance. Its primary function is to save you from injury and damage down the road.
The test will also help you in other ways, whether you want to increase your energy levels, recover from injury or illness, run your first 5K, lose 10 pounds, or just feel stronger. BodyQ testing can jump-start you on the way to achieving your goals.
"Because I had this BODYQ®, I now have a map that will help me establish goals to improve in the areas of concern… it’s a great tool for any human being to know exactly where they’re at so they can make a plan to continue to age in a healthy and functional way." (M.M.)
"The BodyQ screening was an enlightening experience. As we age, there are adjustments to be made. Mobility, strength and flexibility are important in functioning at any age. The information I received let me know I’m on the right track and my current practices have me in the 87th percentile for a 70 year old woman! I highly recommend FYZICAL for screening and remedies to correct any needs." (D.T.)
