Improve Balance With Physical Therapy

Gait and balance issues are not something that people normally associate with physical therapy.  In general, we’re used to the fact that most people look to physical therapy to help with some sort of pain issues.  But physical therapists are also specialists with gait and balance issues, helping patients to get back to normal when problems with balance occur.

What makes gait and balance problems a little harder are the blows to our patients’ confidence that it can cause.  We completely understand, because no one wants to take a simple walk down the street if there’s a worry that a fall can occur at any time.  It’s a reality that many of our gait and balance patients have to go thru on an everyday basis while they are recovering.

But we’re here to say that no problem is too big for physical therapy!  For instance, take one of our recent patients, Rachel.  After surgery left her with significant balance and gait problems, she feared the worst.  But with a comprehensive program designed by Dr. Stefan Paul, and the consistent attentiveness of the Complete Physical Rehabilitation physical therapy staff in Jersey City, she is back to normal with NO PROBLEMS at all!  We couldn’t be more thrilled for her and her recovery!

So if you’re experiencing problems with your balance and gait, we urge you to go right away to physical therapy and find the solution to get back to life.  Call us and schedule an appointment for physical therapy in Elizabeth and Jersey City today!

 

 

“After undergoing brain surgery, my neurosurgeon recommended physical therapy.  Though I did not fully realize why, when I got home I fully understood.  I suddenly lost self-confidence.  I was scared to fall, so walking was a problem.  I withdrew from theworld, so to speak.

When I came for therapy I realized Exercises helped to steady my gait and as I became that the therapists were familiar with my situation and put me through a regime that helped me regain my self-confidence.  I gradually started performing normal tasks, such as walking in my room, eventually walking outside.  Exercises helped to steady my gait and as I became steady again I gained confidence and bounced back.

I am not able to assume all my previous activities.  More importantly, I am able to talk about my ailment and recovery with confidence.

I liked very much that each patient at CPR was treated according to their ability.  I was not pushed into action and was able to advance gradually.  I like the encouragement which I received from the entire team.  They paid close attention and changed exercises to align with my progress.  I found everyone very courteous, friendly, and encouraging.

It has been a real pleasure coming here.  The team is amazingly well coordinated.  All are aware of what my routine was and provided help.  Dr. Paul’s evaluation was highly accurate and his recommended routine brought me back to normal in a quick span of time.”
