Preventing Falls: An Experiential Workshop

Friday, 03/16/2018 12:30 - 1:30 p.m.

Friday, March 16, 12:30 – 1:30 p.m.

Evidence exists that most falls and related injuries in older adults can be reduced. As our snow melts and freezes again, March is a perfect time to “tune-up” the mind-body connections that help prevent falls.

This interactive workshop begins with a brief talk by Jessica Horne, DPT from Merz Physical Therapy. She will share an overview of why falls happen, what dizziness can be improved via vestibular training, and why we have chosen some evidence based strategies for prevention. Then the group will break-out into four groups, rotating through each of the following stations:

• Vestibular Training  • Getting Up & Down from the Floor

• Tai Chi for Balance • Core Strength with Pilates
