Balance Rehabilitation


 

Having a fall is not an inevitable consequence of ageing. There are a number of things that can be done to prevent a fall. My focus has always been to deliver an evidenced based exercise program to improve confidence, balance and bone health. Designing and developing falls prevention services for both the NHS and Charities has enabled me to understand the true impact on the physical and mental wellbeing of an older adult after they have had a fall.  Specific and targeted exercise programs are required in order to regain balance, confidence and develop the ability to get up off the floor.

Chronic Conditions

Regular exercise can help you manage your symptoms and improve your health. Many of my clients have found that our  physical activity sessions has helped to reduce their arthritic pain and stiffness, reduced usage of their inhalers, reduced blood pressure medication or been able to control their Type 2 Diabetes by exercise and diet .

Its important to pay attention to how your body is responding if you have an autoimmune condition while exercising.  Over exercising will make inflammation worse and lead to a flare. Therefore it is important to participate in an exercise program that works for you. In time you will feel and notice the improvements. The clients that I have worked with have had a range of autoimmune conditions ie Lupus, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Multiple Sclerosis etc.  Through  specific and targeted exercise prescriptions, they are now physically capable of participating in regular physical activity sessions feeling stronger and experiencing less fatigue.
