Why it's important

As we age, the quality of our muscle mass and our bone health naturally decreases. That, coupled with potential changes in vision, medication side effects, or other aging factors, can cause a loss of balance and stability, leading to falls and injuries. In fact, did you know that, according to the CDC, more than one in four seniors over the age of 65 suffers from a fall each year

Those falls often result in broken bones, open wounds, or punctures which may or may not easily heal. In fact, falls result in such a wide array of injuries, they often cause a domino effect, making them the number one cause of death among seniors in the United States. 

Therapy greatly decreases the risk of falls, hospital admissions, and injuries. In fact, groups of seniors who practice regular exercise and therapy experience:

Statistic of decreased falls due to therapy
decreased hospital admission statistic due to therapy
statistic on improvement on overall health after therapy
