The good news?  Loss of balance is “not just a fact of life” as we grow older.  Recent studies demonstrate that those most at risk for a fall can often be identified and helped.  Retraining helps prevent falls, offering one a chance to continue participation in life’s activities with less fear of injury or loss of independence.

Attainable goals:

•     Full balance potential
