Fall Risk Reduction Training

Our Doctors of Physical Therapy take their time and focus on improving a person’s mobility, stability, and confidence, thereby reducing the patient’s risk of falling. We always work one-on-one with our patients to improve balance and coordination and we use researched measurement tools to track progress.  And if you live in the neighborhood, we can schedule a visit for an assessment of ways to reduce the risk of falling in your own home.
