Balance and Gait training

Our body’s balance is determined by three systems, the vestibular system, the visual system, and the somatosensory system.

Throughout our lives, our body relies on different systems to create stability. These systems all change over time as we age.

You are not helpless in this scenario–Numerous studies have demonstrated the benefits of staying physically active as we age to improve our central nervous system (brain and nerves) as well as our muscle spindle function.

You have control over your balance and safety, and physical therapy has been scientifically proven to help you achieve reduced fall risk and improved mobility. If you are concerned about your balance, Hampton Physical Therapy is here to help. Call for an evaluation. We can get you scheduled right away.
