​​​Fall Risk and Balance Disorders

Balance and dizziness problems become more common with age. This can affect your ability to walk, stand or even sit comfortably. Balance disorders also increase your risk of falls, which can lead to more serious health issues. To keep you mobile and healthy, our team of rehabilitation specialists will work with you to improve your balance and decrease your risk of falling.

Improving Balance and Decreasing Your Risk of Injury

Your sense of balance comes from your body's vestibular (or inner ear), visual and sensory systems. Changes or damage to any of these systems can affect your balance and increase your risk of falling. This is why our therapists create an individualized rehabilitation plan, based on your specific needs. We also offer inpatient therapy for certain balance disorders to optimize treatment and recovery.

Using Biodex Technology to Help You Recover Faster

As part of our comprehensive services, we use a Biodex Balance System, the only one of its kind in the area. The Biodex Balance System is a specialized machine that can easily and quickly assess your ability to balance and your risk of falling. We also use this advanced system for a variety of rehabilitation therapies. The Biodex Balance System can also help you perform certain specialized exercises designed to improve muscles and movements associated with balance and coordination, while also giving you feedback so that you can track your recovery progress.

Vestibular Rehabilitation Therapy

Depending on your needs, our certified specialists may also use vestibular rehabilitation therapy. Using a personalized, comprehensive rehabilitation approach, we'll work to help you achieve treatment goals and get back to living life comfortably and safely.
