IRG Physical Therapy – Parkside
IRG Physical Therapy – Parkside focuses on the prevention and rehabilitation of physical injuries in an outpatient, fitness-oriented setting. Our approach emphasizes proper body mechanics in all activities as well as the utilization of functional stretching, strengthening and endurance programs that are tailored to our patients’ unique needs.
Our clinic prides itself on providing care for Spokane’s aging population and for those who have been diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease, for which we offer an extensive array of services that assist with balance and fall prevention and training for those with movement impairments.
Wondering if you need a referral from your doctor to start treatment? Washington is a direct-access state, meaning that you can start physical therapy without one in-hand. Start your road to recovery, and let IRG handle the rest!
We offer the Otago Exercise Program for improving balance and preventing falls.
If balance is a challenge for you or a loved one, or if you’re worried about suffering a fall, consider The Otago (pronounced: OH-TAA-GO) Exercise Program. This is an evidence-based, structured, and progressive balance-improvement program proven to reduce the risk of falls in older adults.
IRG Physical Therapy – Parkside therapists are certified to administer this program, which incorporates strength and balance training over the course of approximately eight weeks, then moving on to a home exercise program. We focus on increasing leg strength, which ultimately improves balance. Otago was selected by the Centers for Disease Control in 2010 as an evidence-based fall prevention program and was implemented for physical therapists, occupational therapists, and other skilled care providers. We are thrilled to offer this service to our Spokane patients.
