Balance and Strength
These small group sessions consist of gentle exercises targeted at improving functional strength, body awareness and balance. Combined with education these classes will improve your confidence and decrease the likelihood of falls.
Each participant is assessed before starting so individuals needs can be addressed and a personal plan for ongoing exercise aims can be developed.
This program is aimed at people with concerns about their balance, or those recovering from pain or injury that has led to some weakness or balance deficits. It is instructed by a physiotherapist.
Venue: Goonellabah Physiotherapy
