Free balance screening at CTMC

From Staff Reports

Do you experience unsteadiness, near falls or frequent falls? The Central Texas Medical Center (CTMC) Rehabilitation Institute will host a free balance screening event on Wednesday, June 4 from 2 to 4 p.m. at 1340 Wonder World Drive, Building 2, Suite 2100.
The free 20-minute screening includes blood pressure readings in three different positions and various balance assessment tests. Participants will be able to review their results with a CTMC physical therapist who will offer recommendations and referrals for those who need further evaluation.
There are several benefits to getting a balance screening, including:
•  Determining if the cause of a fall or loss of balance is related to a physical deficit, muscles, joints or equilibrium
•  Preventing a fall by identifying areas of weakness
•  Restoring function after a fall or near fall
•  Determining if a referral to a specialist or physical therapist is needed
The CTMC Rehabilitation Institute offers free balance screenings every quarter. Remaining balance screenings for 2014 will take place June 4, Sept. 3 and Dec. 3. To schedule a screening or get more information, please call (512) 753-3539.
