The need for balance and fall prevention is growing as older adults in our population are progressively living longer. This solution-focused seminar will give your clients the knowledge and creative exercises to age confidently.

Improving Quality of Life Through Training the Spine
According to the National Osteoporosis Foundation, about 54 million Americans have osteoporosis and low bone mass, putting them at increased risk for osteoporosis. Approximately 1 in 2 women and up to 1 in 4 men age 50 and older will break a bone due to osteoporosis. Falls are the leading cause of injury-related death and nonfatal injuries in adults age 65 and older. The National Council on Aging reports that every 15 seconds, an older adult is seen in the ER for a fall-related injury. This problem becomes more prevalent as the population of older adults increases. However, with appropriate nutrition, exercise, and guidance from well-trained professionals, adults can live more active and enjoyable lives.
