Live long, live well!
At SP Therapy Services our Falls Prevention Course is for people who have a history of falls or struggle with the fear of falling. The course contains exercises to improve balance and confidence in being safe and mobile as well as help and advice about falls prevention during day to day life. Advice and handouts are integral part of each session.
Although older people are our main targeted population of this project due to their high incidence of falls and their potential seriousness of the consequences of falls, our classes are designed to address individual patient’s need related to the risk of falls rather than their age or diagnosis.
So if you are experiencing any problems with balance, mobility or confidence related inactivity and think the classes might help you why not join our group. Increasing your physical activity very often involves social activity and interaction. By coming along to the Falls Prevention Course we are sure participants will make new friends.
The new course will commence on Tuesday 9th January 2018, from 10:30 til 11:30, and will run for 6 weeks in our clinic in Bury. The full course will cost £48, and needs to be paid in full prior to the start of the course.
