WHY IS BALANCE TRAINING SO IMPORTANT?
Continue to safely perform your Activities of Daily Living without the need for additional assistance
A momentary loss of balance could significantly change a person’s current functional mobility or be, even, fatal.
Avoid Financial Strain
A significant fall could cause you to have to hire a home health aide or move into an expensive facility
Improve Overall Health Status
Focus on increasing flexibility of the trunk improves overall breathing and ability to reach in all planes of movement
