Balance for Older Adults


Physical therapy incorporating balance training can help prevent and reduce the number of falls among older adults. The CDC reports that one third of adults 65 and older experience at least one fall a year, with 20-30% of falls leading to moderate to severe injuries. With the goal to maintain independence for as long as possible and to reduce the occurrence of falls, our therapists will safely incorporate fun, functional, and creative balance training exercises using a variety of equipment. Regardless of your fitness level, challenging and improving your balance at A2 can improve your confidence, body awareness, and overall safety.

"A2 Physical Therapy has been an amazing place to be at for the past 3 years training with Kristi Cruz. I have had knee and shoulder issues and Alika has been great getting me back to doing the things I love. The staff here is always so loving and kind. I know when I come here I am always excited to be here. I love getting the warm smiles from everyone!"

"The therapy did exactly as I had hoped, it helped alleviate my shoulder pain, and stopped the numbness from creeping down my arm to my hand. The exercises I was shown had the added benefit of helping keep my neck and traps loose and not so tense all the time. A great experience that I would recommend to anyone needing physical therapy."

"I came to A2 PT to assist in my recovery of a torn Achilles tendon. Not fully knowing what to expect, I was pleasantly surprised. Using a combination of PT (for strengthening and stretching) and massage (for scare tissue Break up) I feel my recovery has been accelerated. The whole crew Alika, Kristi, and Sophia are very kind, spirited, and passionate about their jobs! On a personal note, the word massage should be removed from the phrase deep tissue massage. It is very misleading-but it does work!
Keep up the great work gang!!"
