What is Falls Prevention?

Falls Prevention Programmes provide an opportunity for individuals to increase their strength and balance and thus reduce their falls risk.

Are you 65? Do you feel a little unsteady on your feet and / or have concerns about balance and mobility? Would you like to improve your balance?

Doing regular strength exercises and balance exercises can improve your strength and balance, and reduce your risk of having a fall. It's important that a strength and balance training programme is tailored to the individual and monitored by an appropriately trained professional.

Falls Prevention Programmes offer 24 week exercise sessions comprising of tailored seated and standing exercise including; balance & endurance, dynamic balance, floor exercised (if appropriate), strength exercises using bands/balls/light weights and techniques for getting down and up from the floor.

Sessions are currently taking place across Leicestershire - please visit www.lrsport.org/fallsprevention for more information.

Or ask your GP about training programmes in your area.
