Our fall prevention program is specially designed to help individuals maintain or increase their independence. At Dixon Physical Therapy our certified clinicians will evaluate a person's risk of falling by assessing balance, mobility, and strength. A personalized plan of care will be designed to meet individual needs.
Balance training exercises will be used to help the body "practice" the balance righting series and allow reaction times to be more automatic, decreasing the risk of falls. Dynamic strengthening exercises will also prepare the body to respond and react to a loss of balance with less risk of falling.
