Balance and posture go hand and hand, good posture is essential for balance and balance is essential in the prevention of falls. Our Balance and Posture programs’ goals are to help our patients regain their correct posture, increase muscle strength to sustain correct posture, become more mobile, regain independence, and avoid the risk of falling.
Our Balance and Posture program is designed to treat:
Asymmetry of shoulders, hips, and any muscle imbalances
Weak torso (core)
Tight muscles (especially hip flexors and hamstrings)
Lower body muscle weakness
The following are examples of diagnoses and injuries that could benefit from Balance and Posture physical therapy:
Chronic neck, shoulder, or back pain
Injuries sustained from a fall
Physical Therapy is one of the best ways to correct posture, balance, and gait limitations. Patients are comprehensively evaluated on balance, strength, and gait mechanics. The program is then designed to meet the patients’ needs, improving their function while at the same time decreasing their fall risk.
