Balance problems make it difficult for people to maintain stable and upright positions when standing, walking, and even at times, when sitting. When our balance and mobility is affected, performing activities once taken for granted such getting on and off a bus or negotiating busy crowds can be difficult and fatiguing, and can provoke anxiety.
A range of factors can cause balance problems, including:
- Muscle weakness
- Joint stiffness
- Inner ear problem
- Lack of activity and fitness
- The impact of ageing on our joints and muscles
We develop individual physiotherapy programmes to improve your body posture, balance and mobility. We will work to progress your balance and mobility skills, helping to get you back to activities that have been previously difficult for you, and improving your confidence. Please phone us if you would like to discuss your individual difficulties more fully, or if you have any questions. We are happy to help you with your recovery.
