The Importance of Balance
As we age, our muscles and bone mass decrease and the senses that guide balance and kinetic awareness, which includes vision and touch, may start to deteriorate. Fortunately, as with the mind and muscles, loss of balance does not have to be an inevitable part of aging. Good balance skills are essential in activities in everyday life regardless of age or fitness level. People sharpen their balance skills, and help to restore what has been lost, simply by incorporating fitness with basic yet specific stabilization exercises into their life.
The Balance & Beyond home care format works to improve balance, joint stabilization, coordination and overall kinesthetic awareness in a simple, gentle and safe 30-minute session. Our certified professional trainers provide comprehensive personal sessions based on the individual’s lifestyle needs and capabilities. They provide balance-training activities to build stability while also improving strength, flexibility and cardiovascular fitness levels.
Approximately one-third of the elder population over the age of 65 falls each year, and the risk of falls increases proportionately with age. Over half of seniors over 80 fall annually and those who fall are two to three more times as likely to fall again. Among older adults, falls are the number one cause of fractures, hospital admissions for trauma, loss of independence and injury related deaths.
