Improving Balance and Decreasing Risk of Falls
Tuesday, August 25
11:00 am via Zoom
Our balance can decrease as we age, have more injuries and take more medications. This Zoom class is taught by a physical therapist, and will focus on how balance systems work in your body, where break downs can happen, and what you can do to improve your own balance and reducing the risk of falls.

Move Strong is excited to welcome our newest Physical Therapist, Scott Gulstine. About Scott:
Scott Gulstine, MPT, OCS, COMT was born and raised in the Pacific Northwest and lived in the Tualatin area for most of his life. He took a chance and moved away from home to get his undergraduate education at UC Davis where he graduated with a degree in Animal (Human) Physiology. He then attended Drexel University in Philadelphia, PA, where he received his Master of Physical Therapy in 1997. He later moved to San Francisco to start his career, and has focused predominantly on orthopedics ever since. In 2008, he returned to Portland and has been helping the community (of all ages and activity levels) live a better and healthier life.
In 2005, he received his COMT (Certified Orthopedic Manual Therapist) from Maitland Australian Physiotherapy. In 2012, he earned his Board Certification in Orthopedics (OCS). Scott is also certified in the Graston technique of instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization. Recently, Scott has been diving even deeper into biomechanics. He has found that improving the quality of one's movement, and correcting common muscle imbalances, can prevent problems from returning in the future.
Scott enjoys working with patients of most ages (he leaves the treatment of infants and small children to those specialists) and ability levels. He has enjoyed working with professional and highly competitive athletes.
When not in the clinic, Scott is also helping his wife make Loop De Loop wine, here in Portland. When he isn't doing that, he is skiing on Mt. Hood or riding single track on his mountain bike.
