The Fall Prevention Lady
- Brain: Everything begins in the brain. Your balance, your strength, your posture, your pain. Everything begins in the brain.
- Balance Training: Balance is different for everyone; we have all lived different lives, made different choices and have different limitations. Balance training needs to be personalized to activate your brain and improve your balance.
- Use it or Lose it: The entire nervous system operates on the “use it or lose it” principle, including your brain. Train the two things you don’t want to lose as you get older; your brains and 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.
