The importance of range of motion, strength and function when it comes to recovering from an injury is common knowledge. What is often overlooked yet equally important in ankle, knee and back injury recovery and exercise programs is balance; it is also an important part of an older adult exercise program to prevent falls and fractures.
– Key points to balance and its importance in an exercise and rehabilitation program, as well as fall prevention.
– An extensive list of balance exercises will be discussed, demonstrated and practiced.
– Demonstrations on how to evaluate, challenge and progress balance in clients using Reebok Core Boards, Extreme Balance Boards, rocker boards, wobble boards and discs.
