The Workshop Will Cover… 


The top five reasons people fall.

Three things to improve your balance quickly and naturally.

Top causes of hip fractures.

The #1 reason for nursing home placements (that can usually be avoided).

“Are You Afraid of Falling?”


“Do You Lose Your Balance Often?”

If you feel like you have bad balance or you are constantly afraid of falling — and you think either of those is normal.

That’s understandable, since balance usually gets worse over many months or even years. Many people chalk it up to their age.

Sometimes poor balance might be related to an event (like a stroke or broken bone). But regardless of why your balance is bad, you just need to live with it, right?

If this sounds like you, then you are not alone. We hear this type of thing all the time. In fact, we specialize in balance and improving walking (or gait).

Many of our clients say things to us like:

“I am terrified of falling.”


“I can’t walk on grass or up curbs without feeling like I am going to fall.”

Living in fear can be devastating. Many of our patients love to play golf, hang out with their grandchildren, socialize, or just go on walks.

However, living with bad balance can negatively impact your life. It makes many of the things you love much harder or even impossible to do!

Have you ever been told or thought… 

Many of our patients do mention their poor balance to their friends, maybe family, and sometimes even doctors. Often times, they are met with the same responses: pity and little-to-no advice or recommendations.

So, they continue to accept the fact that there is nothing they can do.  This can create bad habits because doing nothing often leads to weaker muscles and worse balance.

If you don’t know what you’re doing, then trying to fix your balance on your own or listening to others can be very frustrating.
