What is the Balance Program?

Physical therapists evaluate each patient for their balance. An individualized treatment program is developed using exercise and activities that improve motion, strength and the ability to compensate for surface changes, residual deficits such as sensory loss or other external forces that can challenge a patient’s stability. The result of treating balance problems is improved mobility and function, decreased risk of falling and improved athletic performance.
