Our Balance & Fall Prevention Prevention Program Can Make You “Bullet-proof” Against Those Tough-But-Common—Falls Or Unsteadiness On Your Feet.
You hear the horror stories all the time…
- A lady fell in her home and was stranded for hours without help or assistance
- Man walks into the grocery store but to only fall in a busy and crowded area
- A causal outing of walking on the beach results in ladies spouse in the ER with a broke wrist or shoulder
- A single awkward swing of the golf club sends the golfer down to this knees after losing their footing
Hey, those kinds of things just happen. Right?
Did You Know That The Majority Of Balance Troubles And
Fall Risks Are Treatable & Preventable?
Unfortunately, most people wait until it’s too late.
“It’s just a normal part of aging.” you’ve been told…
It doesn’t have to be that way.
So, what can be done about it?
Taking some well-designed preventative measures is the key.
Our physical therapy practice has seen significant changes over time in the attitudes and actions of our average patients through the years.
People in their 50’s, 60’s, 70’s, and 80’s today are not like previous generations…
Our parents and grandparents slowed down with age, but you’re part of a demographic that wants more out of life.
Sitting on the sidelines for the rest of your days is NOT an option.
You want to live a long, active life…and we can help make that happen!
That’s The Mindset Behind Our Balance & Fall Prevention Program.
As we mentioned, many falls are preventable!
Here are some “traps” many people over 50 fall into which can lead to injury:
Living a sedentary lifestyle and then suddenly attempting strenuous activity
Not wearing the RIGHT shoes to help enforce and provide stability to your feet…
Losing mobility in the major joints of the body such as the hips, knees and shoulders
Allowing endurance levels to drop to dangerous levels. This allows fatigue to set in sooner, resulting in a greater likelihood of falling
Not taking steps to maintain vital muscle mass. The average person loses up to one half pound of muscle mass per year after age 50. This also makes falling more likely
Each one of these actions (they’re really the result of a LACK of action) can open the door to serious fall…preventing you from doing the things you LOVE.
Did you notice something about this list?
Again, everything here is entirely preventable!
If you have any intention of maintaining an active lifestyle as you age, our fall prevention program is for you.
If you’d like to find out all the details, just give us a call and we’ll walk you through it.
PLEASE NOTE: This is a highly specialized program.
As a result, space is quite limited.
Our Balance Program Is For The Action-Takers Out There…
The ones who have no inclination to slow down with age, but instead want to try new things, stay healthy and live a long, vibrant life!
If this sounds like you, here are some things you can do, before we even speak on the phone, to decrease your likelihood of falling…
1. Get out and move around! Too many of us now sit for prolonged periods of time. This hurts our cardiovascular systems while crushing our mobility at the same time. A dangerous double-whammy!
2. Use resistance training to build muscle mass & prevent falling. The only proven way to maintain that all-important muscle mass that keeps us strong and independent is to lift weights. The weaker you’re, the more likely you’re to fall… (We can design proven programs for you!)
3. Do regular flexibility training. Many falls happen because a muscle or joint is stretched beyond its limits. While you may not be a gymnast, keeping the range of motion you currently have is vital. When you stretch regularly, you make it less likely you’ll be injured or lose your balance.
4. Do a “dynamic warmup” prior to ALL sports activities. All too often, we hop into our activities with little thought of warming up…or that warmup consists of a few short stretches. This is a prescription for a fall. A proper warmup gets our blood flowing, wakes up our nervous system and decreases the likelihood of us falling or tripping.
5. Get in at least 60 minutes of cardio work each week. Many falls happen when we’re tired. Once we become fatigued, our form and stability suffers and it’s more likely we will move in an awkward way. This dramatically increases the possibility of us losing our balance.
Remember: Falling can be detrimental to your health and can destroy your dream of an active “second half” or retirement.
Unfortunately, we’ve all seen this first hand…
Taking the proper steps now can preserve your vision of the future and prevent an unnecessary fall…
This program is NOT like joining a gym and hoping for the best.
We are experts in preventing falls!
But, we’re a little biased about how good our program actually is…
So, before you call for a free, no-obligation consultation, you’ll want to hear from these past balance clients who are now living with peace of mind:
NOTE: You have no obligation after the call.
Let’s talk about your unique situation, your goals and your obstacles.
Together we can chart a course for your active and healthy future doing the things you love to do!
We look forward to working with you!
