      Balance & Falls

      One of the biggest health concerns for people over the age of 60 is falling.

      Featured Services

      Falls can be caused by balance problems, or other health conditions which cause muscle weakness and decreased mobility. One in five falls lead to serious injury, and your risk of falling keeps increasing with each decade of life. As we age, all of our systems start to slow down, which can result in poor balance and falling.

      • Balance Factors & Treatment

        Continuing to exercise as we get older, and doing activities and targeted exercises to challenge our balance is the key to maintaining a healthy system.

      • Vestibular Disorders

        Another thing that can impact your balance and cause falls or dizziness are problems with your vestibular system.
