Recent research has shown that the ability to balance on a single leg for over ten seconds in adults aged over 50 was reflective of long-term health. So whether or not you are in pain, you want to be addressing any issues or concerns about your balance as early on as possible. In fact, many are beginning to consider gait and balance as the 6th vital sign of health.
Until today, the most accurate way to measure your walk and balance was to go to a motion analysis lab - an endeavor that can be costly, inaccessible, and requires hours of analysis time. OneStep sought to change this by creating a physical therapy clinic and a motion lab in your pocket! So while previously impossible, balance issues, limping, and gait can all be diagnosed and improved by our physical therapists without you needing to leave the house.
Physical Therapy & Pain
In addition to dealing with pain or injuries, physical therapy also improves balance, strength, can help recondition old habits and much more. If your goal is to improve your balance and/or your gait, OneStep is a fantastic solution.
