What is balance?
Balance is being able to control our bodies in space despite what’s going on in the world around is. Many of us as we get older begin to lack the adequate mobility, strength, power, and coordination to control ourselves in many environments and can put us at greater risk of falls. Many falls are preventable and gaining better strength, power, coordination, mobility, and working on a balance can help improve your odds as well as allow you to get back to doing what you enjoy!
You can improve your balance at ANY AGE!
Facts About Falls according to the CDC
Each year, millions of older people—those 65 and older—fall. In fact, more than one out of four older people falls each year, but less than half tell their doctor. Falling once doubles your chances of falling again. In New Mexico, over one in four adults (29.6%) age 65 and older, report falling each year.
Falls Are Serious and Costly
I don’t mention these facts as a way to make you fear more as I don’t believe changing one’s weaknesses and behavior is best done by creating more fear. I do, however, want to empower you that YOU can improve your balance at any age, if you are willing to put in the work and the time!
