Balance & falls prevention is more important than you may think. More than 85% of the injuries experienced by the elderly are due to falls. As one age, the fear of falling deters them from partaking in various activities, especially if they have fallen before and received a serious injury. Some of the primary reasons for falls include:
Physiombility Dizziness & Balance Centre offers a combination of exercise programs and education to address mobility issues, muscle weakness and poor balance to prevent falls and fractures.
People aged 60 and over have a higher risk of fractures due to more frequent falls. Every year, about 40% of people over 65 falls at least once. Avoiding falls means fewer fractures, especially hip fractures. People with better posture, better balance, and stronger muscles are less likely to fall and are therefore less likely to be injured.
There are many causes of falling, but major factors that could put you at higher risk, include:
Live happier and longer with a better quality of life
Group exercises classes are great places to meet other people with similar interests or challenges.
