Balance, Dizziness and Fall Prevention

Falls are the leading cause of fatal and non-fatal injuries for older Americans. According to the U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention, one in four Americans aged 65+ falls each year, resulting in over 2.8 million emergency room visits and 800,000 hospitalizations annually. SporTherapy has skilled clinicians who have been trained to treat balance and vestibular disorders as well as provide comprehensive education and training regarding fall prevention.

Increased fall risk is associated with:

  • Age over 65
  • A history of falls
  • Arthritis
  • Depression
  • Dizziness
  • Chronic disease
  • Taking more than four medications
    An acute illness

Other significant risk factors are:

  • Lower body weakness
  • Vitamin D deficiency
  • Walking or balance issues
  • Use of some medicines (such as sedatives or antidepressants)
  • Vision problems
  • Foot pain or poor footwear
  • Home hazards such an uneven steps or rugs and clutter

I really love this place. Everyone is super laid back, which is what you want when you’re recovering from an injury. Super professional and knowledgeable team. A+ all around.

five stars Catherine B. SporTherapy Patient

I love this place! The staff is great and have guided me through two knee replacements. I am very pleased and highly recommend!

five stars Mary D. SporTherapy Patient

five stars Valerie N. SporTherapy Patient

I just want to offer my thanks and appreciation to the staff of your Granbury location for the outstanding treatments and outcomes from my therapy. I have used them twice now for several months at a time for a knee and hip replacement. I found them to be far more effective than a clinic I…
