Age Related Strength Training and Falls Prevention
Falls are the number one reason elderly people are forced to give up their home and go into care. Aging results in the steady loss of muscle mass, bone density and balance. Eventually this aging process can mean frailty, and falls can lead to the loss of mobility and independence. Our personally tailored, clinically supervised strength training, using the latest evidence based techniques, including free weights, pilates techniques, can keep you strong, fit, and independent longer. Weight training, no matter how old you are can prevent accidental falls. Balance, core strengthening and muscle building go hand in hand. Elderly patients retain their capacity to increase muscle mass and bone density remains throughout their whole lives. Stronger muscles, sturdier bones and a trimmer figure and more energy are among the many benefits that come with weight bearing exercise.
