balance for living

"Age is no barrier. It's a limitation you put on your mind." Jackie Joyner-Kersee, 60, Olympian in Track & Field from 1984-1998

Falling is NOT a natural progression of life &

most falls can be prevented.

When the fear of falling leads to a more sedentary and less social lifestyle, it can become a self-fulfilling prophecy by diminishing the quality of life and increasing the risk of falling due to the loss of physical skills.

Prevention involves:

  • Talking to you doctor, pharmacist and optometrist,
  • Making sure your environment is safe, and
  • Regularly strength train for balance.
