Pro Balance 360 is an Advanced Balance Therapy and Assessment Tool and comprehensive analysis of balance. This revolutionary new technology allows us to evaluate your key balance metrics, and use that information to develop a customized therapeutic plan, designed to strengthen the musculoskeletal system and rehabilitate the neural pathways to improve your overall balance, coordination, and stability. By using this stability index, followed by personalized treatment to restore and enhance coordination, we can now achieve optimal balance and coordination with our tailored approach.
BALANCE seems to be all over the news and in medical journals these days, but many do not comprehend the importance that balance and stability plays in daily life for people of all ages. The number one fear of people over 50 is falling. One of the chief complaint from patients in the same age category is that they don’t feel steady on their feet. There are millions upon millions of fall related injuries that cause hospitalization, permanent rehabilitation and even death. Now is time to pay attention to problems with balance and stability and use a proven effective method to rehabilitate them.
FALLING is a result of the inability to recover from a stumble. The fall rate to rise as the population of older adults grows, and is a very real concern to patents and their doctors alike. Falling is not a concern for the elderly, but for all. There are obstacles out there in daily life that threaten falls constantly. The ability to NOT FALL when one of these obstacles is encountered is the key.
STABILITY is an important component of almost all daily activities. Simply walking requires a person to be on one foot at a time. In addition, weekend warriors and elite young athletes spend A LOT of time on one foot.
PROBALANCE360 is a data driven analysis system for the input from the 5 body systems that contribute to balance and stability (or conversely, balance deficit and instability.)
- EYES: sight visual processing
- HEARING SYSTEM: The function and role of the ears with regard to hearing and vestibular function
- CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM: The speed and accuracy of hoe the brain interprets information
- PERIPHERAL NERVOUS SYSTEM: the response time and accuracy of the nerves which transmit information from the body to the brain
- MUSCULOSKELETAL SYSTEM: receptors within the joins and soft tissue that are responsible for proprioception (knowing where the body is in space) and mechanoreception (appropriate response and effective motion)
PROBALANCE360 uses the data from the analysis, which allows the doctor to customize balance therapy plans that address each patient’s individual needs. The therapy addresses each of the body systems during each session while keeping the session fun, active and easily accepted by people of all ages.
