Exercise for Balance & Fall Prevention.

A Balance & Fall Prevention exercise programme aims to equip individuals with a program that encourages lower limb, core strength and proprioceptive balance based exercises that can assist in reducing the likelihood of sustaining a fall or injury.

Falls affect a significant number of older Australians, with over one-third of community dwelling people aged 65 years and older falling one or more times every year. There is now extensive evidence to demonstrate that many falls are preventable, with exercise playing a crucial role in prevention.

What to Expect

To ensure our we can provide a Balance & Fall Prevention exercise programme appropriate for your needs, we generally require you to attend:

  • 1:1 Assessment: An initial assessment in our gym enables your allied health professional to understand individual circumstances, goals and ability. A series of assessment measures surrounding lower limb, balance and core strength will be then be taken so that the allied health professional can create a baseline exercise program that is individual and specific.
  • 1:1 Session: A 45- minute 1:1 session following an Initial assessment to ensure that the constructed program is appropriate, the correct exercise techniques are employed and that the correct external weights and resistances are prescribed.
  • Group Sessions: A 45-minute supervised class in our gym with a maximum of 4 people per class where each participant engages in their own program.
