Falls Prevention

According to the World Health Organisation, 493 Queensland residents died due to an unintentional fall, with nearly 95% being ages 65 years and over. Falls prevention is an integral part of physical well-being which is often overlooked. Muscular strength and power in the lower limbs, reaction time, balance and posture impact a persons' falls risk, however all of the above can be improved with correctly prescribed exercise. 

Our falls prevention group programs have been developed for people who are at risk of falls or who are 65 years or over. The program provides the necessary exercise intervention to improve your postural awareness, lower limb strength, coordination and reaction time, as well as balance.
