Start living without the fear of falling and being dizzy all the time


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:

  • Loss of strength
  • Health conditions such as diabetes and arthritis
  • Wrong type or poor fitting of walking aids (cane or walker)
  • Previously fallen
  • Poor eyesight
  • Poor balance
  • Bowel or bladder incontinence
  • Certain medications causing dizziness
  • Vertigo and dizziness
  • A hazardous environment such as loose rugs and poor lighting


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:

  • Having experienced a fall
  • Taking many different medications
  • Having chronic diseases
  • Having arthritis, especially in the legs
  • Problems with vision
  • Poor or impaired balance
  • Weak muscles
  • Changes in blood pressure or heart rate
