  Title Grand Rounds. Balance problems in the geriatric patient [case report]
Journal Top Integr Health Care. 2011 ;2(1):Online access only 13 p
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Case Report
Abstract/Notes Balance problems and falls are common among the elderly and are a leading cause of institutionalization in this group. Low back pain (LBP) is the most frequently reported musculoskeletal condition in the elderly and is a leading comorbid factor directly linked to the incidence of falls. Balance disorders in the geriatric population are often a multifactorial condition. While there is not a single solution to postural control problems, there is evidence that the most effective treatment strategies for balance disorders consist of a multimodal approach including a re-evaluation of medications, manual therapy, exercise, and behavioral modification programs. This case report describes an interdisciplinary approach to the diagnosis and management of an 85 year old woman with balance problems.
