MOOV Steady, Stay Ready!

At Moov Physiotherapy, your well-being is our top priority, and we understand the critical importance of fall prevention, especially as we age. Falls among individuals aged 65 and older are, unfortunately, common and can lead to severe disabilities or even mortality. That's why we've developed MOOV Steady, our comprehensive Fall Prevention Program, designed to empower you with the knowledge and skills needed to maintain your balance through stability, strength, and mobility exercises for a safer and more confident life.

Why Fall Prevention Matters

Falls are not just accidents; they are often preventable incidents. The consequences of a fall can be far-reaching, affecting not only your physical health but also your independence and quality of life. With age, the risk of fractures, head injuries, and other complications increases significantly. By focusing on fall prevention, you can reduce the chances of experiencing these life-altering events.


The Three Key Components of Balance

Our Fall Prevention Program is built upon three fundamental pillars of balance:



Stability is the foundation of balance. It enables you to maintain your equilibrium and adapt to various terrains or unexpected disturbances in your environment. Our program will teach you how to enhance your stability, giving you the confidence to navigate the world around you.



Having the necessary strength is crucial for better decelerating and absorbing a fall should it occur. Through tailored exercises and guidance, we'll help you build strength in the right muscle groups so you can respond effectively, reducing the impact of a fall and enabling you to get up after the incident.



Maintaining mobility is essential for performing key functional movements in your daily life. Our program will focus on preserving your range of motion, ensuring that you can continue to engage in activities you love and carry out everyday tasks with ease.
