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.
