Balance Keeps Your Stumble from Becoming a Fall
Typically, a fall is the end of action, not the beginning. What may have started as a walk, climb, or run becomes a trip, slip, stumble, misstep, loss of footing or other blunder. And then comes….the fall, resulting in bumps, bruises, sprains, strains and sometimes even breaks.
What if there was a way to improve balance and thereby reduce the incidence of falls? Better yet, what if it was easy and could be fun and cheap (even free)? It may sound too good to be true, but an article from Harvard Health Publishing, Harvard Medical School says it is indeed the case!
One of the primary contributing factors for balance impairments is a sedentary lifestyle. Therefore, a simple, inexpensive way to combat the risk is to get moving!
Stay balanced with these activities:
As with any exercise plan, you should check with your doctor before beginning something new. Part of your exam and consultation will involve your doctor of chiropractic evaluating your muscle strength and balance. Then you will receive recommendations for what exercise plans would be best suited to your health status and goals.

I saw Doc when I was a senior at central college. He really took great care of me and the patients received great treatments. I just graduated chiropractic school 6 months ago and want to thank Doc for the motivation to pursue chiropractic school.
