BLOOMER, WI – Winter is coming! And you know what that means; ice and slippery surfaces become a danger to those with compromised balance. October is Physical Therapy month and Midwest PT is offering FREE balance and fall risk assessments for anyone that is concerned about their safety and independence.

Being a leader in Physical Therapy in the Chippewa Valley, we have nine locations around the Chippewa Valley to make it convenient for you or your loved one to have their balance assessed.

These assessments will be carried out by our therapy staff at each location and will include a brief medical and fall history, individualized balance test that will determine level of fall risk, basic balance exercises, and how to prevent future falls.

Visit our website at www.midwestpt.net for locations, dates, and times at all locations.
