Falls prevention classes

Every year in Australia over 100 000 people are hospitalized with fall-related injuries.  The incidence, morbidity and mortality associated with falls rises dramatically in those over the age of 65.

 

Minimising falls is a complex and multi-faceted task.  Reducing the risk of falls related to household clutter and obstacles must be considered when aiming to optimize strength, coordination and balance.

 

Exercise to prevent falls should focus on appropriate strength, endurance, balance and flexibility.  Cardiovascular fitness should also be addressed.  Functional exercise regimes have also been shown to reduce the occurrence of falls.
