Balance and Fall Prevention

There are many different reasons why a person may feel unsteady on their feet while walking and performing their daily activities.  Factors such as muscle weakness, dizziness, lack of activity, joint stiffness, and aging can all contribute to feelings of imbalance.  Experiencing a fall can cause long lasting negative effects including pain and decreased confidence in performing various activities which lead to difficulty enjoying an independent life.  Physical therapy is so important in helping with fall prevention for older adults.  A physical therapist is able to assess your risk of falling and can develop an individualized fall prevention program with specific exercises to help you feel confident on your feet, walking, stair climbing and all the activities you love
