You can improve balance and avoid becoming a statistic…

Balance training with a physical therapist can not only improve your walking speed, but your ability to climb stairs. It also increases your stability in daily life while decreasing your fall risk. Physical therapy helps to improve balance by strengthening your ankles, hips and core, stretching muscles, and to increase your sense of balance.
