FYZICAL Therapy and Balance Centers is an evidence-based physical therapy practice with an emphasis in vestibular balance therapy and fall prevention, sports medicine, and a variety of other orthopedic programs.
Our centers are passionate about healing patients, but our primary concern/goal/motivator is prevention. We are part of a movement to lead the charge to transform healthcare from one of “sick care” to “well care” by providing services focused on quality outcomes, total well-being, and prevention.
Only through PREVENTION can we stop the body from breaking down, INTERVENTION to preemptively identify potential problems, change BEHAVIOR to reduce the 15 highest costs to healthcare, EDUCATE our patients about proper nutrition and exercise, and through integration of TECHNOLOGY to advance the efficiency and power of healing our patients.
How Our Change Benefits You and Your Patients
Our products and services remain, with the addition of premier balance therapy. We are thrilled to provide the highest standard of ongoing care that you have come to expect from us!
At some point in life, most people will experience dizziness; a very scary and disorientating experience. There are many causes for dizziness, but it’s often due to a problem with the vestibular system.
Dizziness from inner ear problems can be treated without medication or surgery. Balance and vestibular physical therapy can help patients recover the weakened vestibular system and use other senses, such as vision and touch, to compensate for the loss of balance.
Falls from poor balance can cause serious, and even life-threatening, injuries. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention:
- Each year, one in three adults over the age of 65 falls, and the risk of falling increases proportionately with age.
- Falls are the leading cause of fatal injury and the most common cause of nonfatal trauma-related hospital admissions among older adults.
- Every 11 seconds, an older adult is treated in the emergency room for a fall, and every 19 minutes an older adult dies from a fall.
The Good News
Falls are preventable. If you have patients who suffer from imbalance, early intervention with physical therapy is key. We can help your patients get back on their feet safely and effectively!
FYZICAL’s treatment and recovery protocols include utilizing cutting-edge equipment which isn’t available at any other outpatient physical therapy or treatment center in the area. For example, FYZICAL’s balance program incorporates a Safety Overhead Support (SOS) system. This system utilizes a harness and ceiling-mounted rails making it is impossible for patients to fall and hit the ground, allowing them to exercise safely without the fear of falling!
Our FYZICAL will offer FREE Fall Risk Assessments to identify individuals of all ages and conditions at risk of falling. By identifying risk, future injuries can be prevented. Our skilled physical therapists will create a program specifically tailored to your patient’s balance needs.
We are still the same high-quality practice, with the same caring people, dedicated to offering the same quality of care you expect. Our staff will be the same and our treatment hours will be the same as they always have been.
This change is simple, and it is one that will have a positive impact on our team, facility and all our patients. If you have any questions about this transition that haven’t been answered here, feel free to give us a call!
Thank you for your ongoing support! Have a great day!
