Balance is critical for activities of daily living, including walking and climbing stairs. Balance impairment is common in seniors, but it can also affect people of any age who have suffered a head injury or stroke. Physical therapy uses special exercises to help improve balance. The therapist may use a variety of tools, including BOSU balls or foam pads. Patients can also benefit by improving their flexibility and coordination.
Greendale Physical Therapy can help you manage these issues, including:
- Strength-training to increase muscle strength and reduce the risk of falls and fractures
- Exercises to improve balance and coordination performed with supervision in a safe environment
- Customized gait training to improve walking and reduce the risk of falls
Greendale Physical Therapy, LLC helped me regain the strength in my ankles and feet to keep me walking and continue to exercise and golf. The staff are all well skilled, pleasant, and supportive. I would highly recommend them to my friends for PT. They are a great group!
