Physical Therapy for Balance and Fall Risk

Falls & Balance Physical Therapy

What is Falls & Balance Therapy?

Falls and balance therapy is a type of therapy that helps people with balance problems who have trouble staying steady and are at risk of falling.


This includes conditions related to the vestibular system, which is part of the inner ear that helps control balance. But, it also includes poor balance that stems from reduced activity as you become an older adult. 


Balance and Fall Reduction therapy can help you move safely and feel more stable in your home and your community.

What are the Benefits of Falls & Balance Physical Therapy?

Falls and balance therapy can help you in many ways:

  • Improve Balance: It can help you stand and walk without falling.

  • Increase Strength: It can make your muscles stronger to support better balance.

  • Reduce Dizziness: It can help lower feelings of dizziness, especially if related to the vestibular system.

  • Boost Confidence: It can make you feel more sure of yourself when you move.

  • Enhance Mobility: It can help you move around more easily and safely.

Is Falls & Balance Physical Therapy Right for Me?

If you live in Pennsylvania and have trouble with balance, feel dizzy, or have had falls, or maybe you have neuropathy, balance therapy might be right for you. It is truly the only thing that helps people of all ages improve their balance and prevent falls.

Find out quickly if you have a high fall risk by taking this 10 question survey.  "Fall Risk Questionnaire"


This therapy is especially helpful for seniors who are experiencing poor balance and are concerned about falling.


Most problems with falls & balance occur simply because we stop practicing things that require good balance as we get older. But most don't think that preventing falls in the elderly population is possible.  


The central nervous system can make up for the loss of balance capability. The brain learns to rewire itself to balance better by practicing specific exercises that will reduce fall risk especially in older adults.  


This central (or brain-based) compensation can help the patient to feel better and allow them to return to their normal functions with much more confidence.

What Type of Exercises Should I Expect from Falls & Balance Physical Therapy?

In a program designed to prevent falls, you will do different types of exercises:

  • Balance Exercises: To help you stand and walk safely.

  • Strength Training: To make your muscles stronger to support better balance.

  • Vestibular Exercises: To help improve the function of your inner ear and reduce dizziness.

  • Coordination Activities: To improve how well your body parts work together.

  • Functional Activities: To help you do everyday tasks more easily and safely.

Your therapist will create a fall prevention plan just for you, with exercises that match your unique needs and abilities and we will educate extensively along the way so that you have a great understanding of your challenges and also why you are getting better.

"My husband has been through occupational and physical therapy several times. Both helped some, but something was missing. This last time I watched him get strength back, he could get out of a chair without help and he could go up the stairs. As I watched him walk down our driveway, I still felt uncomfortable for him to walk alone, he was wobbly( he resists canes and walkers).  An article caught my eye about Balance therapy . I felt that was the missing piece ! I got in touch with One-0ne Therapy in Your Home. I thought I was going to have to pay out of pocket but to my surprise, it is covered by Medicare. Jessica and Joel were wonderful! Needless to say my husband is not always cooperative but they they made him even look forward to their visits after a short time. He's back to gardening and I can't Thank Jessica and Joel enough."
