Many of these people have had issues with their balance for months (if not years), and they’re afraid about the potentially life-altering effects of having a fall. Whether they’re trying to avoid their first fall, or they’ve already experienced multiple falls, the ultimate goal is the same: to remain as active and independent as possible.
, I want to make the purpose of this report as clear as possible: the goal of this report is to give you some actionable items that can help you improve your balance right away. This report is NOT an all-encompassing solution to your balance issues... Rather, it’s a starting point to give you some confidence that there are things you can do to improve your balance and reduce the likelihood of having a fall, and that you don’t just have to accept things the way they are (even if you are getting older!)
A simple thing can change your life—like tripping on a rug or slipping on a wet floor. If you fall, you could break a bone, like thousands of older men and women do each year. For older people, a break can be the start of more serious problems, such as a trip to the hospital, injury, or even disability.
