The goal of this exercise and fall prevention continuing education program is to familiarize physical therapists with how exercise positively improves a senior’s balance, reaction time, functional ability and risk for falls in both community and institutional settings. After completing this module, you will be able to:
  • Describe how types of exercise, including strength, balance, aerobic and flexibility training work to reduce fall risk
  • Create exercise programs for frail and institutionalized patients
  • Design solutions to keep older adults exercising after physical therapy treatment has concluded
