Senior Balance Therapy

Senior Balance Therapy Class have been geared around our own body's Balance Network system.  This Balance Network, builds and maintains balance using three separate areas: eyes, ears and joint sensors.  Our exercises have been specifically designed to include all three balance centers with minimal effort and maximum benefit. 

Our classes are regularly attended by seniors ranging from 65-95 years old and of all ambulatory skill levels. Classes are primarily used to enhance balance skills and practice fall prevention  Walkers and canes are encouraged to be used during class.  This class is also designed for those that are sedentary majority of the time. These exercises are great for rehabilitation for those that have been inactive or bed-ridden due to injury or illness. Additionally, these exercises are used to enhance balance for fall prevention.

Exercises developed for this disc enhance balance for hands, seated and standing positions. This disc helps to build strength in the joints as well as challenge joint balance.  Eyes can be open or close when preforming the seated hand and foot balance skills.

Testimonial

Dr. Jen helped me fully recover from a car accident when my primary care physician, long-term physical therapy, and therapeutic massage had no benefit at all. I've had really mixed experiences with chiropractors in the past (mostly unhelpful), but Dr. Jen knows techniques that were very effective and restored full range of motion to my neck without pain. I am beyond grateful and have referred one of my best friends to her; the friend is just as delighted as I am. In addition to being uniquely effective, Dr. Jen provides the perfect balance between nurturing human warmth and professional efficiency. I think she's amazing.
