Changes in walking and balance are common with movement disorders.

EvergreenHealth's Balance and Fall Prevention program is here to help minimize the functional impact.

We treat multiple gait disorders such as:

  • Ataxia, festinating and freezing associated with Parkinson's disease
  • Spastic gait often associated with stroke or MS
  • Disorders associated with weakness

Our Fall Prevention Checklist address the risks you might find in your home or out in the community, which is key to reducing the risk of falls.
