Balance & Your Body: How Exercise Can Help You Avoid a Fall Workshop 2 Download as iCal file
Monday 17 August 2020, 14:00 - 15:00
Description:

As we age our risk of falling increases as does the likelihood that a fall will cause an injury. Before the time of COVID-19, falls were the leading cause of injury, emergency room visits, and hospitalizations for seniors in North America, and half of all falls happened in a person's own home. How can we help seniors prevent a fall, maintain their independence, and avoid a hospital visit? Amanda Sterczyk, an independent author and personal trainer, will teach participants about the balance "sweet spot", the complexity of our balance system, and how easy it is to incorporate exercise into their daily lives to improve their balance and prevent falls.
