Fall Preventing Professionals in New Jersey and Pennsylvania

Preventing a fall should not only involve accounting for icy or slippery weather, especially if you’re dealing with an injury or condition that makes you prone to instability. That’s why our knowledgeable professionals go above and beyond where most therapy facilities settle.

With our comprehensive Fall Prevention Program, you’ll be thoroughly evaluated by your personal therapist using a variety of tests and techniques that help us understand your condition. During your appointment, our physical therapists will review things like:

  • Balance
  • Transfers
  • Gait
  • Posture
  • Strength
  • Flexibility
  • Pain

By taking some time to meticulously analyze these areas and review your medical history, we’ll be able to design a fall prevention plan with your needs in mind. After all, your body is a temple and should be treated with the unwavering support of a therapist who sees you as an individual, not just a number.

Thanks to our customized approach to improving your balance, you’ll be provided with all the advice and tools you need to handle anything you encounter during your day—whether you love to hike, spend time with your kids, or cook a big meal.

Causes of Falls: Identifying Your Condition

The first step to keeping you on your feet is to properly determine the cause of your instability. Luckily, our Doctors of Physical Therapy come with years of experience in handling balance issues of all types. To give you an idea of what your therapist might conclude during your evaluation, here are some of the most common causes of falls:

  • Vertigo
  • Balance Disorders
  • Stoke
  • Arthritis of the Limbs
  • Anemia or blood disorders
  • Foot Injuries
  • Parkinson’s Disease
  • Confusion or Cognitive Impairment
  • Poor Vision
  • Side effects of medications
  • Postural Hypotension

On top of that, our compassionate professionals utilize strength training techniques to boost your weight-bearing abilities and increase your balance. That way, you’ll be strong enough to sidestep a fall once you start slipping and avoid further injuries from your tumble, like fractures, strains, or pulls.

Plus, we’ll help you master your ability to use a cane or walker, and provide you with a home safety assessment, so you’ll be even more protected from a fall.
