Balance Screenings

Balance Screenings

Balance problems are among the most common reasons that older adults see a physician, according to the National Institutes of Health.

Good balance:

  • Reduces your chances of falling
  • Supports walking without staggering
  • Helps you up from a chair without falling
  • Enables you to climb stairs without tripping

The physicians and staff of the St. Luke’s Balance Center provide comprehensive evaluation, diagnosis and treatment for patients with all types of balance disorders. These include history of falls, vertigo and dizziness, chronic conditions, concussions and injuries.

St. Luke’s Balance Center is located at: 1417 Eighth Avenue
Bethlehem, PA 18018

A second balance program is offered at St. Luke’s Miners Campus:

A Matter of Balance – Fall Prevention Education and Exercise Program

A Matter of Balance, an award-winning program designed to reduce the fear of falling and increase activity levels of older adults, is offered at our St. Luke’s Miners Campus and our St. Luke’s Quakertown Campus.
