Physiotherapy Management of Postural Instability

Date and Time: Apr 16, 2024 – 18:00 (EDT)

Description:

Physiotherapy has a very prominent role to play in the assessment and treatment of balance problems and fall prevention strategies. Older adults also represent a growing demographic for physiotherapy care across settings of practice.

This webinar in 2 sessions will cover the assessment and treatment of balance problems in older adults. These sessions will provide evidence-informed best practices covering:

  1. Balance and control systems for postural stability;
  2. Changes with aging that affect balance;
  3. Assessment of postural stability – choosing clinical balance tests; and
  4. Interventions to improve postural stability.
