STEP-SAFE BALANCE CLASS
Focus on challenging the body systems that control balance and improving flexibility and strength.
Falls are the most common cause of hospitalisation in persons over 65yrs of age and are often caused by poor balance, weakness of muscles, stiff joints, slow reaction time, tiredness, dizziness, weakening eyesight, and hazards about the home.
Whilst a lot of people think that falls are a normal part of getting old, we know otherwise. Balance can be improved with Physiotherapy by focusing on improving ankle flexibility, increasing lower limb strength and challenging the body systems that control balance. Strengthening exercises reduce the risk of falls and the likelihood of fractures.
