Our ability to balance well from youth to maturity can determine a lot about the quality of our lives.
In order for movement and activity to be enjoyable and a daily part of our lives, we must feel grounded, confident and sure on our feet. And when we no longer move with that same confidence and control, life can get scary pretty fast.
Today’s conversation with Strong By Design co-host Tonya Fines and Balance & Stability Specialist Chris Wilson explores this world of balance, movement and what falling truly looks and feels like for our older adults and seniors. It’s time to WAKE UP your body’s #1 balance nerve!
"When you fall when you're younger you get a bump or a bruise, fall when you're older and you get a fracture or severe injury." -Chris Wilson
