Pine Plains Platter

Balance Program

Falls are the leading cause of injury deaths, the most common cause of non-fatal injuries, and the most common reason for hospital admission due to trauma in older adults.

Dizziness and balance disorders can affect individuals of all ages and significantly impact function and mobility. Many describe the sensation of dizziness or lack of balance, which can be symptoms of change in the vestibular system. If untreated, balance disorders can lead to injurious falls.

STAR Physical Therapy offers a comprehensive balance, vestibular and fall prevention program that provides individualized treatment to reduce symptoms, reduce the risk of falls, and improve mobility
