Balance Assessment and Treatment
While many assume decreased balance is an age-related and normal phenomenon, in fact, balance can be improved with a movement program to increase safety and function. Loss of balance in the older adult has been directly linked to muscle weakness. Some loss of strength is age related due to physiologic changes in the muscle tissue. Some loss of strength is preventable with physical training. Skillfully chosen exercises combined with dynamic training can help you be more certain of safely making progress.
