Balance Rehabilitation

Balance problems make it difficult for people to maintain stable, up right positions with standing, walking, and even sitting. Older people are at higher risk of having balance problems; 75% of Americans older than 70 years are diagnosed as having “abnormal" balance. Physical therapists develop individualized physical activity plans to help improve the strength, stability, and mobility for patients with balance impairments. Improving balance and walking skills can help to decrease risk of injury, while at the same time improving confidence and independence.

Conditions that can cause decreased balance and increased fall risk:

  • Stroke
  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Generalize weakness
  • Post surgery
  • Medication changes
  • Neurological diseases, i.e. Parkinson’s, Multiple Sclerosis, ALS
  • Vestibular disorders or dizziness
