Restoring Balance and Quality to your life!!!
Dizziness, falls, fall-related injuries and the fear of falling can significantly diminish the length and quality of human life; moreover, they can decrease a person’s physical activity, social activity and the ability to live independently. Falls are the leading cause of injury in younger and older adults, and the leading cause of death in those over 85 years old. Falls and the fear of falling can even cause a person to be institutionalized.
There is Good News: Falls can be prevented!
