Balance and gait (walking) dysfunctions affect many individuals at some point in their lives and occur when a disease, trauma, injury or natural aging process result in the inability to steadily maintain the body over the feet. This can lead to decreased stability, loss of balance and falls. Balance and gait dysfunctions commonly result in decreased participation in recreational activities, decreased independence, and increased risk of falls during everyday activities. A lot of this can be prevented with the right physical therapy treatments.
Our specialized team of Physical therapists will assess your balance and gait through a special analysis to determine what areas are causing your balance and gait problems–It could be as simple as weakened muscles or more complex like dysfunctional vestibular symptoms.
