Evidence shows us that home-based exercise programs containing some form of balance and strength training are the most important intervention strategy to effectively decrease falls.
Strength and balance retraining is the most long-term, effective fall prevention measure that has cardiovascular, metabolic, and self-confidence benefits in addition to greater stability. Research has shown that falls can be prevented by retraining your balance and improving your muscular strength, endurance and flexibility.
Osteopathy helps you maintain your vital independence with the implementation of individual, class and home exercise programs for balance, strength and falls prevention.
Our program consists of an individual assessment. Tailored exercise programs, such as those set out for you by a Osteopath, have been shown to be more effective than general programs at helping people regain good balance. Gentle strengthening, mobility and balance exercises with our Osteopaths will help you maintain your independence and confidence.
It is never too late to start exercising, if you or a member of your family are concerned with your safety and balance, we would love the opportunity to assist you.
