As a result of injury, disease, or simply aging, proper balance can become a challenge. Thus the risk for a fall and injury to occur increases. Vision or hearing issues, medications, loss of muscle strength and range of motion may all play a part. It is important to address the issue of improper balance BEFORE a fall (and possible injury) occurs. Research has shown that treating problems with balance lowers the risk for falls!
If this becomes a problem, physical therapy is an effective option.
