Fall Prevention Classes

Starting In January 2022
Every Tuesday @ 10:30am EST

Our many years' experience in fitness and exercise therapy has taught us that a structured exercise program with balance training helps reduce falls and fall-related injuries. We believe that balance training is the mainstay of fall prevention and create our programs to include exercises that improve endurance, muscle strength and flexibility.

We refer to this as our "Well Rounded Approach to Fall Prevention." 

                     

                    

The Benefits of our Fall Prevention Programs include:

  • Faster reaction time. This can help you keep yourself upright if you start to fall by putting out an arm quickly to grab something stable.

  • Improved coordination. This can directly help prevent falls but can also help you roll rather than crash as you go down.

  • More muscle. Stronger and larger muscles can buffer the impact of a fall, providing some protection to bones and joints.

  • Stronger bones. Resistance exercises strengthen bones, and stronger bones are more resistant to fractures.

  • Better brain function. Regular exercise helps maintain brain function with age. Clearer thinking may help you avoid situations that increase fall risk.
