Balance & Fall Prevention
Roughly 85% of falls occur at home, and falls are the leading reason for emergency room visits. Our team works to decrease falls and prevent injuries through evidence-based fall risk assessment tools and treatment programs. Declines in functional ability and the ability to perform self-care tasks, health conditions, and even medications can make it more likely that someone will fall. Our skilled therapy staff will develop an individualized Balance & Fall Prevention plan in conjunction with the physician that includes a multidisciplinary team approach. The plan will help with balance, flexibility, muscle strengthening, and walking, as well as identifying and resolving home safety issues – all of which will reduce your risk of falling.
