Falls and Balance Assessment

The best way we’ve found to identify the root cause of falls is through a comprehensive balance assessment. These assessments evaluate each “system” used by the body to maintain balance, including the inner ear, eyes, muscles and joints, and the brain. 

Using state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment, our multidisciplinary team can evaluate your entire balance system and use that evaluation to recommend specific ways to prevent falls from occurring in the future.

The first step in the process is to take this simple test. It’s designed to identify any problems you may have with balance impairment and falls risk. Simply select the most appropriate answer using the scales listed below. Be sure to answer all of the questions, even if you’ve not done some of these things recently.
