COMPLIMENTARY FALL RISK SCREEN

DPT Sport offers a complimentary 30-minute Fall Risk Screen
by one of our Doctors of Physical Therapy!

  • Our Doctors of Physical Therapy (DPT) use our custom one-on-one fall risk assessment to determine if you are at risk of falling using CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) gold standard research-backed static and dynamic balance tests
  • Discuss with our therapist any concerns that you may have regarding mobility, weakness, dizziness, instability, balance difficulties as well as any presence of pain
  • Based on the findings of our fall risk screen combined with any fall history that you may have, our licensed physical therapist will recommend whether you are appropriate for physical therapy and if so, the next steps to take
  • Physical therapy has been proven in research to decrease fall risk, saving many individuals from unnecessary fractures, hospital stays, and devastating or fatal injuries
  • We assess your need for an assistive device as well as intrinsic and extrinsic risk factors including but not limited to: sensory impairments, memory/cognitive difficulties, visual impairments, dizziness/lightheadedness, and leakage or frequent urination
  • If you have concerns about financial limitations, physical therapy to treat instability and fall risk is considered medically necessary and is therefore covered by all major insurance companies, including Medicare
