Balance is defined as the ability to control and maintain your body’s position as it moves through space. Since balance is such an integral part of daily life most people rarely give it conscious thought unless a problem occurs. There are conditions that may impair your sense of balance and contribute to falls. The effects of aging are the most common causes of balance problems; injury and disease can also trigger problems. Because falling is such a common and potentially serious problem 1 in 4 people over the age of 65 (who live at home) will fall during the next year it’s important to find out what you can do to decrease your risk and improve your general health and mobility.
