Fall-Injury Prevention

Gait and Balance Rehab
Harlingen, TX | Eagle Pass, TX | Brownsville, TX | Del Rio, TX

Accidental falls rank as a leading cause of injury and death among retirees. Fear of falling leads to self-restriction in activities, lowered quality of life, physical decline, and increased risk of falling. Fortunately, Back to Action Physical Therapy helps retirees regain their gait, balance, and confidence to improve mobility, safety, and life.

Gait Rehabilitation: We work with strength and range of motion in the hips, legs, and feet. Gait rehabilitation also works with stride length and foot clearance to make walking more safe. Improve the ability to avoid tripping, clear obstacles, walk uphill, mount curbs, and/or climb stairs.

Vestibular Assessment and Rehabilitation: Dizziness and challenges with balance may come from central or peripheral vestibular disorders. Assessing and efficiently treating such disorders is one of the specialties at Back to Action Physical Therapy.

Upper Body Strengthening: Strength in the arms, shoulders, and core muscles can help people maintain balance and catch themselves should a fall begin.

Fall Training: What a person does during a fall strongly influences the likelihood of injury. We train patients in what to do in various types of falls to minimize the risk of injury.

Aquatic Rehabilitation: Training in our therapeutic pool allows many patients to safely and confidently participate in assertive, upright exercises without risk of fall injury. Additionally, the turbulence of the water challenges balance and provides great balance training.

Equipment Evaluation and Fitting: We help patients decide on the right ambulatory aides such as canes or the right types of walkers. Then we help fit the equipment and thoroughly train patients in the best use of the equipment.

Fall Prevention Education: Modification of behavioral and environmental factors can significantly reduce the risk of falls. We can provide consultation on shoe type, lighting, carrying lighting devices, avoiding obstacles, bathtub surfaces, etc.

And More!: Above we have described only a sample of the various challenges and solutions that can affect the risk of fall injury. Individual assessment and rehabilitation by a Back to Action physical therapist will reveal your specific opportunities. If you or someone you care for has experienced an accidental fall, please do not wait.
