Balance and strengthening exercises are the gold standard treatment for preventing falls in the elderly. In addition to reducing the risk of falls, exercise has the added bonus of promoting self-confidence, improved cardiovascular fitness and improved independence through increased strength, endurance and reaction times. A regular group exercise class is an easy and positive way to challenge and improve your balance and achieve these benefits.
Many common conditions are treated with balance and exercise training including osteoarthritis, osteoporosis, hip and knee replacements and lower back pain. The class is uniquely tailored to your needs by Physiotherapy assessment and is beneficial for any stage of recovery.
We run Balance and Exercise Classes every Monday, Wednesday and Friday morning.
