BALANCE PHYSICAL THERAPISTS
Once you’ve fallen and hurt yourself, you may worry about it happening again. As you move throughout your day, your fear of falling again may inhibit your sense of independence.
A physical therapist can help you overcome those fears while designing balance exercises to prevent falls, making you stronger and back to being highly functional in all your movements. Physical therapy for balance is one of many services offered though Brooklyn-based TRI Physical Therapy.
Balance problems can make it difficult to stay upright while standing, walking or even sitting. As you get older, the risk of having balance problems increases. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), as many as one in four older people fall each year, in many cases, because they lose their balance. Without proper balance therapy, you can’t function as you like. Even everyday activities pose a threat of falling.
When you lose your balance, you’re at risk of having a serious injury such as head trauma or a broken bone. Whether or not you’re injured in a fall, experiencing loss of balance and having one serious fall can lead to an intense fear of falling. Your physical therapist at TRI Physical Therapy in Brooklyn is experienced in body balance physical therapy (PT). Get the help you need to return to a fully functioning life.
