Physical Therapy For Balance & Fall Prevention
Maintaining balance is the result of a complex interaction of many systems in the human body. With aging, changes occur that reduce how efficiently these systems work. Intervention programs work! Evidence shows 20-50% lower fall rates with a systematic program of evaluation, exercise, and environment.
An exercise program can reduce the risk of falls. Exercise performed at a moderate intensity or progress from low to moderate intensity two to three times a week is recommended.
Whether you are having difficulty getting around your home due to age, have had a sports or work-related injury, or are recovering from an event such as a stroke, Physical Therapy at Hope Health and Wellness can be extremely beneficial in the recovery process.
Identifying risk factors for falling can be, but is not limited to:
- balance/gait problems
- prior falls
- low vision
- limited ability to perform Activities of Daily Living (ADL’s)
