“ You Can Stay Active and Healthy At Any Age ” Get More Done Pain-Free
• GetMoreDone Pain-Free • How’sYour Balance?
Scientists used to think that strenuous exercise was the only way to improve your health. However, new research suggests that just 30 minutes of moderate physical activity provides most of the health benefits needed. Moderate intensity is best, but even low-intensity activity is better than nothing. While some people may enjoy participating in a regularly scheduled exercise class, others may find it easier to just increase their daily activities, like walking. It’s never too late to start moving Physical activity is important, and can help you live independently for as long as possible. However, if you have chronic aches and pains, it can be difficult to exercise. This lack of physical activity can make the condition worse and more
difficult to live with. This is where physical therapy can really help you. Not only do we relieve your aches and pains quickly, we can teach you how to safely exercise to maintain your new pain-free mobility. Our knowledgeable physical therapists are experts in muscle and joint problems, helping you return quickly to normal pain-free function. At FYZICAL Therapy & Balance Centers we listen to you and create custom hands on treatments that alleviate your pain, improve balance, improve movement and walking while getting you back to doing normal everyday tasks with a healthier outlook on life.

“ If You Are Age 65 & Older, This Is What You Need To Know About Balance!” How’s Your Balance?
Can you close your eyes and stand steady on one leg for 10 seconds? If not, then your balance is not up to par. Your ability to balance is an incredibly complex action that requires millions of nerves and hundreds of muscles to work together to stop you from falling onto your face. Manypeople thinkhavingpoorbalancehappens in just older people. However, poor balance is one of the leading causes for sports injuries, chronic back pain and much more. Having poor balance often goes undetected until it is
very severe and puts one at exceptional risk for injury. It is even worse for older adults, especially over age 65, of which one third fall each year. People who experience a fall are at increased risk for future falls, too. Major injuries, including fractures, head trauma, and soft tissue injuries, occur in about 10% of individual falls. However, minor injuries are much more common. Balance and walking decline as you age. Fear can develop of going up steps or curbs,
walking on grass or walking into dark areas. One reason for this loss of balance is joint stiffness and weakness in muscles of the hips, lower extremities and feet. When there is a loss of the mobility in the ankle joint and multiple joints of the foot, you cannot adapt well to uneven terrain. We can help you regain your balance, walk and even run better!
