Stay upright, confident, mobile and independent
With more than a third of all U.S. adults 65 and older experiencing a fall each year, with up to 30 percent suffering moderate to severe injuries (according to the CDC), it’s imperative that seniors and those approaching their golden years take balance issues seriously. And physical therapy can help.
Falls due to balance issues can be caused by a number of factors, including weakness, joint stiffness, and pain, inner ear problems, the lack of consistent exercise, or simply issues related to aging. Several medical conditions such as arthritis, stroke, MS, and Parkinson’s disease can also increase the chances of a fall. Whatever your background, our physical therapists will assess the cause of your balance issues and provide an individualized program with an eye toward strengthening and stabilizing your body.
Goals of Physical Therapy :
Reduce the risk of falling

From there, we can establish a personalized balance and strengthening regimen for you, providing you with the confidence you need to get back to the activities you love.
