WHAT IS BALANCE TESTING?
At Calder Chiropractic Centre we pride ourselves on being at the forefront of new technology, as such we are using a revolutionary system in the Pondera Balance Board. This system is used to evaluate your balance and will assign you a "balance age". This information can be used to estimate the likelihood of a person having a fall in the next 12 months. The Pondera system will indicate if your problem is due to ocular, vestibular or proprioceptor issues (ie, is it your eyes, ears, cerebellum or spine). Your chiropractor can then give you appropriate exercises to improve your balance and therefore reduce your falls risk and to give you better motor coordination. Your progress can be tracked quantitatively by doing repeated balance tests.
