According to the CDC, more than one-third of adults 65 and older fall each year in the United States and 20% to 30% of people who fall suffer moderate to severe injuries. Our goal at Bodyworks is not only to help you rehabilitate from injuries due to falls, but also help prevent future falls.
Factors that can negatively impact balance:
- Neurological conditions
- Lower back/hip/knee/ankle pain
- Vestibular conditions
- Normal aging
- Generalized de-conditioning
- Side effects from medications
- Inner ear problems
- Uncontrolled blood pressure.
Preventing Falls & Feeling Off Balance
Research tells us that exercise and balance training programs reduce the risk of falling and injuries from falls. Our Physical Therapists can work with you to determine what might be negatively influencing your balance and customize a program to improve your balance, reduce your risk for falling and hopefully prevent any future falls!
