Are You Or A Loved One At Risk Of Falling? We Can Help!


Prevention of falls is critical to the health and quality of life for all older adults. Let us help reduce the risk.

For older adults, falls are one of the greatest causes of serious health problems, and can result in hip fractures, head injuries or worse. Many people hospitalized for a hip fracture do not return home and are no longer capable of living independently. Our new Biodex Fall Risk Screening & Conditioning Program can identify potential RISK FACTORS in just two minutes. Those identified can be entered into the Conditioning Program to reduce the risk.

Of great concern to a parent when a child suffers a concussion is: Will there be lasting effects? And, when is the child ready to resume sports and other activities.

Progressive Physical Therapy can help answer those questions. Our facility now offers the Biodex Concussion Management Program which is used by leading hospitals, rehabilitation centers and top Professional and University sports teams as a concussion management tool. Progressive Physical Therapy would like an opportunity to discuss the program and provide your child with a simple baseline test of balance and cognitive assessment.

The test takes only minutes but will provide valuable information in the event your child sustains a concussion. If your child has had a concussion, we can work with you and your child's doctor to manage the recovery process. Almost one-third of nearly 3 million concussion cases diagnosed annually occur with children under the age of 14. It is also the most common sports related brain injury among 15 to 24 year olds.
It is important to understand who is susceptible. School aged children engaged in contact sports are in a high-risk group, for not only suffering one concussion, but also a dangerous reoccurrence. Each concussion is different, so too is your child's recovery process. Having objective baseline and data driven support is essential for those difficult return to play decisions.

We look forward to discussing the benefits of the program with you. Please call for a time to set up an evaluation.
