Are you over the age of 60? Have you ever had your balance assessed?
As we get older, changes in our muscle mass and body systems that keep us upright can lead to a greater risk of falling. Falls are the most common cause of both hospitalisations and deaths from injury in Australia.  Those who fall can suffer injuries that reduce mobility, independence, confidence and can lead to further negative health complications
Approximately 30% of people over 65 fall each year, and for those over 75 the rates are higher.
Research has shown that the introduction of a balance and strength program can reduce the risk of falls anywhere between 20-35%.
However, the good news is that you are able to significantly reduce your risk of falling by adopting a structured and tailored exercise program to remain strong, tune balance, and stay healthy.
Our team at MEDHP can help to assess your balance, discuss you risks, and guide you through a tailored exercise program to keep you strong, balanced and healthy for years to come.
