Balance Difficulties

People of all ages can have balance difficulties, but these are more common in older patients. These issues can develop gradually over time due to decreased strength and fitness or more quickly after an injury such as an ankle sprain. Good balance is a very important part of the way we interact with our environments and impacts safety and independence as we age.

SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS:

  • Frequent falls
  • Holding on to furniture when walking around your house
  • Rolling your ankles
  • Are afraid of falling

HOW CAN PHYSICAL THERAPY HELP?

If you have difficulty maintaining balance, experience frequent falls, or are challenged negotiating uneven terrain, PT can help by improving strength, power, overall endurance, and balance specifically on different surfaces and with different activities.
