Through this program, our experienced physical and occupational therapists design tailored treatment plans that build strength, increase mobility and empower our patients to live their fullest lives with decreased risk of falling.
After a functional assessment, St. Luke’s patients will work with their assigned therapist to create an individual program to perform exercises that improve balance to prevent future falls and injuries. Tailored treatment plans can include a combination of land and aquatic exercises, as well as occupational therapy to promote independence. By developing and sticking with an exercise plan, patients can effectively enhance their ability to function on a daily basis and embrace life to the fullest.
