The Fall Prevention Lady
- Brain-based: Everything begins in the brain. Your balance, your strength, your posture, your pain. If you want to improve your balance, you have to start by giving your brain what it needs for healthy function; fuel and activation.
- Balance Training: Balance is different for everyone; we have all lived different lives, made different choices and have different limitations. Aging, disuse and disease affect the body systems involved in balance. Learn how to activate, not medicate!
- Use it or Lose it: The entire nervous system operates on the “Use it or Lose it” principle, especially your brain. Learn how to train the two things you don’t want to lose as you get older: 1. Your brains 2. Your balance
The most recent CDC report estimates that one-quarter of adults over age 65 and one-half of those over 80 will fall each year. That’s a lot of falls! The good news is that over half of these falls can be prevented through education, exercise and early detection.
