Balance problems make it difficult for people to maintain stable and upright positions when standing, walking, and even sitting.
A range of factors can cause balance problems, including: muscle weakness, aging, diabetes, peripheral neuropathy, stroke, arthritis, spinal conditions, lack of activity, or a sedentary lifestyle.
A person with balance problems may experience tripping, swaying, stumbling, dizziness, vertigo, and falling. Balance problems can make a person fearful of performing simple daily activities. As a result, they may lose muscle strength and become frail because they avoid strenuous or challenging movements.

As a result, you will receive personalized attention to help you reduce your fall risk and your fear of falling; improve strength, mobility, and balance; and increase your overall activity levels.
