The Benefits of Balance and Fall Prevention Therapy
As we age, our bodies go through various changes, making us more prone to trips and falls. Falling can cause significant injuries, especially for older adults. A simple fall can lead to a broken bone, limited mobility, loss of independence, and decreased quality of life. However, by taking precautions and proactively taking balance and fall therapy, we can prevent unfortunate accidents.
One way to improve and restore balance and coordination is through Balance and Fall Prevention Therapy. Our clinic now offers ProBalance 360 – a breakthrough in Balance and Fall Prevention Therapy. This innovative technology analyzes key balance metrics using a force pressure plate, and sends the data via bluetooth to sophisticated software to calculate your Stability Index.
Using your stability Index and the data from our baseline assessments , we are able to custom build a treatment plan with different cognitive and therapeutic exercises designed to help improve and restore balance and coordination throughout the body. Here are 5 benefits of balance therapy.
Decreased risk of fall
Improving your balance through therapy is one of the best ways to reduce your risk of falls. By developing better balance, stability, and coordination, you’ll be less likely to experience a loss of balance and fall. Balance and Fall Prevention Therapy can help you feel more secure when standing, walking, or climbing stairs.
Reduced risk of injuries
Falls can cause minor bruises, cuts, and sprains or more severe injuries, such as traumatic brain injury or broken bones. By bettering your balance and coordination, you can reduce the risk of injury and not be as susceptible to accidents that could limit your mobility.
Improved posture and alignment
Hunching over, slouching, and poor posture are all too common with age. Balance and Fall Prevention Therapy can help improve your spinal alignment and posture, which can help alleviate chronic pain in your back, neck, and shoulders.
Falls can significantly impact one’s mobility and lead to loss of independence. However, by proactively seeking Balance and Fall Prevention Therapy, you’re taking control of your mobility and reducing the risk of dependency on others.
Increased overall health
Better balance through Balance and Fall Prevention Therapy is good for your overall health. By participating in balance exercises, you’re increasing your strength and flexibility, which can decrease the risk of other health issues that tend to cause falls such as cognitive decline, dizziness, and cardiovascular disorders.
Fall prevention and bettering your balance are essential to aging comfortably and happily. The benefits of improved balance and coordination go beyond simple prevention of falls, leading to an increased quality of life.
