Falls Prevention Class in Adelaide at Pro Exercise SA
What is a Falls Prevention Class?
Falls prevention classes are suitable for individuals lacking confidence in their balance and stability and may have experienced recent falls in the community. At Pro Exercise SA, our falls prevention classes aim to strengthen the main muscles involved in maintaining balance. Under the supervision of our Exercise Physiologist and through static and dynamic balance exercises, as well as light resistance exercises, individuals will be able to improve their balance and ultimately gain more confidence with mobilising independently.
Benefits of falls prevention classes:
- Improves ankle stability – useful when mobilising on slippery or uneven surfaces
- Improves hip stability – useful in maintaining a low centre of gravity
- Improves stepping strategy – useful when recovering from a slip or loss balance
How do I start?
All clients at Pro Exercise SA must be assessed before commencing a group program. This includes recording a comprehensive patient history, identifying individuals goals and preparing the patient for an appropriate group program. The assessment will also determine the patient’s suitability for group classes.
