Fall Prevention: Strategies and Tips from the Experts

When we’re young, we take staying upright for granted.  But, experts say, it’s never too early to start thinking about improving your balance and preventing falls.

As we age, things change. The body’s systems that detect gravity, identify exact body positioning at any moment, and promote balance and stability become less effective.  That, plus certain medications and environment, can make falls more likely.  Still, fear of falling doesn’t need to rule your life. In this session, therapy experts will share how to help prevent falls and stay strong on your feet.  These approaches could help to maintain your independence and increase your awareness of potential fall risks.
