Balance Training

What is Balance Training?

Everyone has a risk of falling – some have a higher risk than others. As our bodies get weaker, our balance may also deteriorate. According to the CDC, one out of five falls causes a serious injury, such as a broken bone or head injury. Each year, 2.9 million older people are treated in emergency departments for fall injuries. More than 95% of hip fractures are caused by falling – usually by falling sideways. Your therapist will perform a thorough set of tests to examine your posture, strength, balance, and range of motion. After the assessment, your therapist will discuss the treatment plan that will help decrease your fall risk and allow you to feel more confident when walking in the community.

Injuries Prevention Tips

Injury Prevention is the key to a healthy and successful season. If you think injuries are bound to happen once you begin to increase your volume of training … think again!

Listen to your Body
You are the only one that knows exactly what you are feeling. You are the best judge of whether or not you should RUN or REST. Be smart! If there is any doubt as to whether you should run, choose the more conservative route: complete rest or (pain-free) cross training.
Introduce VARIATION to help avoid repetitive stresses.
Alternate and/or change your running shoes frequently; ensure you are in the most appropriate shoe for your foot and body type; vary running surfaces; change your running route; adjust the type of workout; and incorporate cross-training on non-running days.
Incorporate STRENGTH TRAINING 2x/week
Regular strength training helps you stay healthy and become a faster, more efficient runner.The best strengthening exercises: are three-dimensional, multi-joint; focus on the FULL body; and are running-specific.
Implement RUNNING DRILLS during warm-ups and easy runs.
Running drills are one of the most effective ways to improve your running form – and focusing on your running form can make a significant difference in helping you become a better, faster, more efficient runner.Why do them? Drills teach your body to land below your center of mass and absorb the force of impact. They help improve foot strike and can improve performance with an increase in stride rate and stride length.
