Balance and Coordination Therapy (Gait)
Balance and Coordination services focus on an evaluation of the patient’s functional abilities and assessment of positions or movements that provoke the patient’s symptoms of unsteadiness. Based on these findings, an appropriate therapy program is designed to minimize those symptoms, improve the patient’s balance, and increase their functional independence. Treatment also emphasizes efficient gait patterns on all surfaces along with effective use of assistive devices (canes/ walkers). Sports and Spine’s patients will also learn about safety in the home and fall prevention.
