The risk of falling increases with age, but this statistic can be changed.
As we age we loose muscle strength, bone density and neuro- muscular control. All this leads to a greater risk of falling because your muscles are weaker, and you don’t have the control to move quickly or correct yourself as easily- meaning your balance is reduced.
Can you stand on one leg for 30 seconds?
If not - you will be a FALLS RISK over the next 10 years, but you have a decade to do something about it!
Our Physios are highly trained in assessing your falls risk and giving you strategies to reduce this risk with Brain,Balance and Strength training.
We have individual and class-based solutions to help you in this area. Once you have been assessed and an individualized program prescribed at a level you can manage, you might find you are ready for a more cost effective class program, like our very popular Keep Moving class (click here for more information about Keep Moving) – link to video ?? or text page
