Falls continue to be a significant risk factor for injury including fractures and head trauma. This article offers you tips to make your home and environment safer. In addition, balance training can be extremely effective in reducing the risk of falls.
Are you having difficulty maintaining your balance during your daily activities? The Clinical Test for the Sensory Integration of Balance is available to assess your risk for falls due to impaired balance. Using our Biosway machine, we can compare your balance control to the population and give a risk prediction for falls. If we detect a problem, a treatment plan can be developed. Get yourself and your older family members tested today by calling 732-747-1262.

Case Study: Why Concussion Baseline Testing Works
From a parent of a concussed athlete treated at db Orthopedic PT
Our daughter began seeing Dr. Bertone five months after suffering what has turned out to be a "complicated" concussion. There are no simple concussions, and concussion management is crucial to a positive recovery. Dave is professional, proactive and a problem solver. Our daughter began seeing progressspecifically with vestibular therapy, in a safe environment andfor the first time in months we were able to point to measurable results. Concussions that do not resolve quickly are devastating and effect all areas of someone's life.
If your child is an athlete get a baseline test. If your child suffers a concussion seek out a professional who specializes in concussion management. Our daughter is a three sport athlete; recovering from this injury is the toughest training she has ever had to do. With the help of vestibular, and balance therapy she is fighting for recovery. We are so grateful we found Dr. Bertone, and are hopeful our daughter will have a full recovery with db orthopedic PT as part of of our team.
