Balance & Falls

How to regain your CONFIDENCE to walk again after falling… and Learn SIMPLE ways to conquer the FEAR of falling again…so your family members NEVER have to worry about the possibility of you FALLING again…

Want to learn more about your Balance & Falls? 

If you’ve recently fell and have broken something, it’s very tempting to think that you will have to rely on a walker or a cane FOREVER to be able to go outside again without the fear of falling creeping into your head. 

Or if you had repeated falls and are living with the fear of falling and have accepted that this is just “something that is a part of aging”. 

You think time will help regain your confidence back but it’s been 6 months and it doesn’t seem to be getting any better! You now have to stay home and wait for someone to walk with you everytime you want to go out. 

If this is happening to you, you’re not alone – we hear this all the time at Empowerment Physical therapy. 

And when it comes to living with balance problems & falls, everybody we see wants to know

Why is This Happening to Me?


Why Am I Still Suffering With The Fear Of Falling After Putting Up With It For 6 Months (Maybe More)?

Most people think that when they fall, the fear will just goes away on its own with rest and time.

That they’ll wake up one morning and like “magic”, it’ll be as if that fall never happened… But then 6 months later you’re still living with balance problems and the fear is often even worse than it was when it came on.

Does That Sound Like You?

Another scenario we see all the time is when people go to the Doctors, and the Doctor tells them to rest and “try these pills” and “see how it goes”.

But this is rarely ever the best advice and often 6 weeks later, they end up going back to the Doctor again because it hasn’t got any better. Worse, they’re often given yet another prescription of even stronger pills, and advised MORE rest. This is madness and explains why so many people aged 40+ are struggling with balance and continues to have a fear of falling.

Has This Type Of Thing Happened To You?

Why else does the fear of falling last longer than it should do? Well, it’s easy to get confused because you’ve been told different things, by different people. There’s lots of people out there who are happy to dispense advice – but not all of it is credible.

Maybe you think your balance problem was caused by doing something – like being dehydrated or high blood pressure – but really it was caused by years and years of poor posture that caused the muscles in your body to become weak.

If you don’t know what you’re doing – balance/falls can be very confusing and because of this, many people just end up accepting it as ‘part of life’ – as if it’s normal, and ‘just the way it is’.
