There is more to balance than meets the eye, though this is one system that works to maintain balance. Naturally there is a decline in balance with age due to changes in different body systems. Losses of balance can lead to falls and potentially decreased participation in the activities that you enjoy most. Luckily, these body systems can be trained in order to improve balance and quality of life. The goals of this class are to educate you on how the body maintains balance, introduce you to balance training exercises, and discuss modifiable risk factors for falls so you can continue to live life with independence!
