Balance and Fall Prevention

Innovate Physical Therapy takes a comprehensive approach to fall prevention. All clients over the age of 65 and anyone with a history of falls within the past six months are screened for fall risk. Qualified clients receive and extensive balance evaluation, assessing physical factors, such as health conditions, vision, hearing, sensation, strength, gait and vestibular system along with cognitive screenings. External factors, such as medications and home safety, are also evaluated. We provide individualized plans to improve balance and work one-on-one with clients to reduce the risk of future falls.
