Falls among the elderly are common, and often diminish their ability to live an active and independent life. Contributing factors that increase the risk for falling include: muscular weakness, decreased reaction times and the reduction of balance strategies. Consulting with a trained physical therapist can greatly reduce an individual’s risk for falling and potentially causing a life changing injury. We can help you avoid or manage the risk factors that compromise your balance and safety. Our treatment ranges from strength and endurance enhancement to postural education to balance retraining.
