Balance therapy and fall prevention

Balance disorders are life-altering and sometimes life-threatening, as they can lead to serious falls. Falls account for up to 80% of all hospital admissions in older adults. Falls are a significant cause of fractures, loss of independence and loss of life. Because of this, all balance disorders should be accurately diagnosed and promptly treated by qualified physical therapists.

Kelly, King, DPT, is specially trained to detect and treat balance problems caused by neurologic and orthopedic problems as well as inner ear or vestibular disorders. Balance problems can be caused by lower extremity (legs, feet and ankles) deconditioning, weakness and peripheral neuropathies, including diabetic neuropathy. People suffering balance disorders may experience symptoms such as:

  • Sensations of dizziness or vertigo
  • Falling or the sensation of falling
  • Lightheadedness or faintness
  • Difficulty with reading or vision
  • Disorientation, unsteadiness
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Changes in heart rate and blood pressure
  • Fear, anxiety and panic
