Balance Class: Improve Balance, Reduce Fall Risk

We’ve developed a program to improve balance, reduce fall risk, and prolong independence. According to the CDC, 3 million older Americans go to the emergency room for fall-related injuries, every year. In 2015, falls resulted in more than $50 billion of medical expenses.

Real-World Setting; Real-World Improvement

Mountain States has a brand new, state of the art balance center at our clinic located in Arvada, Colorado. The balance center has real-world terrain to maximize treatment opportunity for real-world improvement. We’re hosting a 6-week balance course, which kicks off July 14, 2020. Our physical therapists built this program for individuals who live at home independently. This class will improve balance, reduce fall risk, and prolong independence.

Balance Class Details:

During the first week, our physical therapists will conduct individual balance testing. The outcome of initial testing marks a baseline for progress. Following individual evaluations, there will be 6 group classes. During the last class, we’ll conduct balance testing once more. A physical therapist will review progress made during the program.

  • Each class will occur Tuesday morning. The time of class is TBD, based on participant preference.
