What is a balance assessment and why is it important?
Our ability to balance decreases as we age, but there are ways to increase our strength and flexibility. Every year, one in three people over age 65 fall, in fact, balance begins to decline progressively in your twenties unless steps are taken to prevent it. The balance assessment identifies whether or not a balance problem exists and determines its underlying cause, and in turn, how to best improve it!
What to Expect?
When a balance assessment is completed, the score would place that patient into a low, moderate, or high fall risk. If determined moderate or high, we would most likely recommend therapy services. We can develop a generic therapy exercise for those folks to get them going that would be safe, but definitely indicate skilled service would be beneficial to prevent falls. If low risk, we can recommend wellness activities to continue and a different generic exercise form to continue in order to maintain functional level.
What are resistance bands?
Resistance bands are lightweight, easy-to-carry elastic bands that can be used to exercise all parts of the body. There are dozens of online resistance training routines for seniors, as well as programs designed specifically for strengthening certain areas and building balance. Incorporating resistance training into a daily workout routine can greatly improve muscle strength, balance, coordination, flexibility, and range of motion. Resistance training also helps fight bone loss and the symptoms of arthritis pain.
