Balance Physical Therapy for Fall Risks


Falls can diminish your ability to lead an active and independent life. About one third of people over the age of 65 and almost half of people over the age of 80 will fall at least once this year. There usually are several reasons for a fall.

Our physical therapists at Rock Run Physical Therapy can help you reduce your risk of falling by:
  • Assessing your risk of falling
  • Helping you make your home as safe as possible
  • Educating you about the medical risk factors linked to falls
  • Designing individualized exercises and balance training
  • Working with other health care professionals and community services to create programs for people who want to reduce their risk of falling
The reasons for falls are complex and include:
  • A history of previous falls
  • Leg muscle weakness
  • Vision problems (cataracts, macular degeneration, wearing bifocals)
  • Taking more than 4 medications at the same time or psychoactive medications (such as sedatives or antidepressants)
  • Medical conditions that limit your ability to get around, such as Parkinson disease, vertigo, stroke, or diabetes
  • Conditions that cause confusion, such as dementia and Alzheimer disease
  • Depression
  • Using a cane or other walking device
  • Low blood pressure

Our How Physical Rehabilitation Can Help



If you are worried about falling or if you recently had a fall, our physical therapists can conduct a brief check ("screening") of your fall risk. If the screening shows that you are at risk, the physical therapist will perform a thorough evaluation using special test to measure your balance and strength.

Based on the evaluation results, your physical therapist in Roy will design an exercise and training program to improve your balance and strength. A recent systematic review of many published studies found that exercise-based programs in the home or in group settings are effective in preventing falls. These programs are especially effective when balance exercises are performed in a standing position without using much arm support.
