As we become less active (not necessarily older) there is a correlation with an increase in balance impairments and an increased risk for falls. This can lead to significant injuries and hospitalizations. Falls are the #1 cause of hip fractures and one out of four older adults will fall this year. Fortunately, these can be avoided, and you can take an active role in decreasing your risk.

There are many components to balance and having a skilled professional help you figure out what needs to be addressed is the quickest and safest way to stay on your feet – whether it’s dizziness, muscle weakness, impaired use of important balance strategies, or coordination impairments from a stroke or a traumatic brain injury you have had – we are here for you.
