“Are you worried about your balance? Are you worried about being able to get off the floor if you fall?”
What are the major components to preventing a fall and improving balance?
- Strength training can increase leg and glute strength- imperative to reducing the risk of a fall.
- Core Strength is another component which ties in with balance and fall prevention. Training core muscles for stability can help you up when you slip on the ice, off a curb, etc.
- Balance Training including single leg exercises, balancing on an unstable surface, agility moves and coordination can simulate real-life situations and teach the body to adjust its COG (Center of Gravity as needed).
- All of the Above can strengthen the body to be able to withstand a fall and be able to get up from a fall.
