Falls are a major health concern among older adults.  Reports show that 1 in 3 Americans over the age of 65 will fall each year.  Research has also shown that falls can be decreased with physical therapy intervention.  Alpine Sports Medicine’s Fall Prevention Program provides a thorough balance assessment and individualized plan to address the found deficits.  For more details and information click here to see our brochure.
