BreakThrough PT is a name you can completely trust when it comes to balance training. Experts in human movement, we take a comprehensive approach to each individual treated through our comprehensive and custom physical therapy, wellness and sports performance programs.
Statistics show that more than 30% of individuals over 65 have at least one fall each year and in over half the cases, there are multiple falls in a one year cycle. If you or someone you love is in this category (over 65) then it is time to inquire about a fall prevention and balance training program near you. Physical therapists are the most qualified and licensed professionals who can help you overcome the significant risk for falls as you age through fall prevention and balance training programs.
Facts about changes we experience as we age will help you understand the advantages of balance training:
- Our proprioception (awareness of the body in space) reduces or becomes less acute.
- Our vestibular system (eyes and inner ear working together) becomes less acute.
- Our ability to handle multiple sources of distraction reduces.
- We lose muscle mass (strength) if we do not actively and purposefully engage in a proper program designed specifically for us.
BreakThrough’s fall prevention and balance training programs incorporate exercises, one on one training, manual skills and other key tips for you to succeed in any environment, maintaining greater independence.
BreakThrough has a great deal of expertise when it comes to fall prevention and balance training. If you want to reduce your risk for injury and major complications, time, expense and significantly reduced levels of independence, it is time to get help.
