Mobility, Balance and Falls
A healthy body keeps a healthy mind!
Following a period of illness or immobility it is often hard to regain the fitness you previously had. We can help you find the best way to achieve this in order to regain your independence and enjoy life to the full again.
A third of all adults over 65 fall every year, but less than half seek help. Falls can seriously impact on a person’s quality of life and impair confidence. Keeping mobile, strengthening muscles and working on balance can hugely decrease the risk of repeated falls. This is where some physiotherapy advice and assessment of the particular difficulties you are experiencing can set you in the right direction. On occasion it might be as making the environment you live in safer or looking at ways you could improve your walking. Sometimes a more bespoke exercise or activity program can help you achieve better flexibility, balance and strength.
