Fall Prevention/Balance Improvement
OSF Rehabilitation Services offers a fall prevention and balance program to help those at risk of falling.
Falling is the leading cause of injury and death for those over age 65.
Our skilled staff work with patients and their family members to improve balance, identify risks for fall within the patient's natural environment and eliminate or work around those risks wherever possible.
The program also includes evaluating the patient's skeletal and muscular system.
Visual and vestibular (inner ear), as well as cognitive, testing are also done.
