As we go about our daily lives, good balance is essential. Safely climbing a flight of stairs, stepping into the bathtub, and even getting out of bed in the morning all rely on our ability to balance. Poor balance is a major reason why one in three people over the age of 65 experience a fall each year.
Our balance begins to decline in our 40s, but many of us don’t pay attention until it becomes a problem. Fortunately, balance is a skill that we can get back!
