Death rates from unintentional falls among adults ages 65 and older increased 110% between 1999 and 2016, from 29.4 to 61.6 per 100,000, according to a recent report by U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Moving from a rooted or grounded posture can improve dynamic balance. It is rare that falls happen when someone is standing completely still. Falls occur during movement! So we need to work on teaching balance during everyday kinds of movement. Somewhat similar to slow dancing, our Thursday Easy & Gentle Tai Chi-Qigong class at Sun Lakes Country Club is continually moving! Join us to improve your balance!
