The Balance Clinic at HealthRidge emphasizes practical strategies to improve balance, reduce fear of falling and increase activity levels. Along with simple strength and balance exercises, the Balance Clinic helps participants increase confidence and improve coordination and strength.
Participants interested in the Balance Clinic need to attend a free Balance Screening March 19 or March 22 to assess balance and fall risk. Registration is required and can be made by calling HealthRidge at 521.1216. Participants must be 25 years or older and not wheelchair bound.
While the screenings are free, cost of the eight-week class held April 2-May 24 is $75 and no insurance is filed. Classes are held each Monday and Thursday from 1:10-1:50 pm at HealthRidge located in the Forest Ridge Medical Pavilion. For more information call HealthRidge at 521.1216.
