Balance and Fall Physical Therapy

Trained specialists and equipment to help you regain strength and balance

We provide a program customized to you: your balance impairment, level of mobility and medical history. The Balance and Fall Prevention Program helps you gain the strength and balance to become more active, more confident and more independent. 

Individualized therapy plan to help you

The first step in beginning therapy is a comprehensive assessment to determine the best combinations of treatments. We assess your:

  • Balance
  • Endurance
  • Flexibility
  • Gait
  • Strength
  • Overall condition

Some medical conditions can impact your ability to perform activities. We take these into consideration as we develop your specific treatment plan. Some conditions which may affect your ability include: illness or injury; use of medications; or the neurological effects of stroke, Parkinson's disease, Multiple Sclerosis, or similar conditions.

Balance technology tailored to you

Methodist Physical Therapy utilizes the Balance MasterTM, an interactive computerized system which uses visual feedback and sensitive monitoring of movements to help see what is impacting balance and mobility. This assessment and retraining tool is coupled with one-on-one instruction, and a customized program of exercises and activities to increase strength, endurance, flexibility and balance. Many participants become less reliant on walkers, canes and other assistive devices, or are able to eliminate their use entirely.

A specially-trained team to help you

One key to success is interaction with our team of experienced physical therapists, who are balance and gait specialists. We offer specialized care for specific needs, and work closely with your primary care physician.
