Falls and fall-related injuries are a major cause of mortality and morbidity as we age. Currently, a serious fall related injury is the leading predictor of loss of independence. Staying active in your twilight years is extremely important. Physical activity focussing on strength and flexibility can enhance balance and mobility, reduce the risk of falling and help to manage a fear of falling.
Unley Physiotherapy has developed strength and balance classes to support active ageing and reduce the risks of falls and fall related injuries, enabling you to remain as mobile and independent as possible.
Prior to attending classes, you will benefit from a personal assessment to ascertain your current level of functioning. This enables your physiotherapist to adapt exercises to your needs and ability, and to ensure you are exercising in a safe and effective manner.
Classes run for 60 minutes, focussing on strength and balance exercises and some education.
