Summary:

Ambulating, climbing stairs, and performing activities of daily living require good balance control and coordination among the body systems. Deterioration of these systems affects balance and increases the likelihood of falls. Fall risk assessment tools can assist therapists in determining appropriate therapeutic interventions, allow healthcare providers to monitor meaningful balance changes, and improve reimbursement by allowing practitioners to document objective balance findings consistently.     

Objectives:

The goal of this vestibular system continuing education program is to improve physical therapists’ knowledge about vestibular dysfunction and balance retraining with older adults. After studying the information presented here, you will be able to:
  • Understand balance, fall, and dizziness assessment tools, and fall prevention guidelines for the older adult
  • Recall vestibular-specific assessments and evidence-based interventions
  • Describe appropriate evidence-based physical therapy interventions to improve balance and decrease the risk of patient falls
