Mobility/ Balance Improvement
With an aging population, more older adults are at risk of falling due to changes in mobility and balance abilities. If you find yourself tripping, falling, or feeling off-balance often, it may be time to improve your body’s stability to decrease the likelihood of a fall injury accident, before it’s too late!
Here are some ways we improve mobility, balance, and stability:
- Provide customized home exercise plans for muscles involved in maintaining balance (hips, core, feet)
- Assess for any flexibility restrictions, and provide instruction on which muscles need stretching
- Look for any muscle weaknesses or imbalances, and give ways to improve strength/endurance in those areas
- Assess pelvic floor strength and function, as this can be an overlooked contributer to poor balance!
