Free Balance Testing & Fall Risk Screening

Are you fearful of falling?  Have you been stumbling lately?  Join us for Free Balance Testing and Fall Risk Screening on Wednesday, September 24. 

Falls are not a normal part of aging and most can be prevented. You have the power to reduce your risk.

In recognition of National Fall Prevention Awareness Week, Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health is offering a Fall Risk Screening. It’s free and open to the public. Come have your balance checked by licensed physical therapists and learn ways to decrease your risk. 

WHO:  Open to all who wish to have their balance evaluated

WHAT:  
Evaluations will be conducted using the STEADI questionnaire and balance tests, which are part of the Center for Disease Control’s physician toolkit for fall risk assessment.

COST:  Free of charge
