Do you sometimes feel unstable on your feet?

Do you often use a wall or furniture to help you balance?

Do you get nervous going down stairs?

                  Have you had an unexpected fall?

Falls are quite common among people with MS.  But there is something you can do to reduce your risk and prevent unnecessary injuries that can impact your well-being.

Free From Falls is an 8-week fall prevention program designed specifically for people with MS who are able to walk, but may be at risk for falling. 

In just 8-weeks you will:

  • Gain an increased awareness of what can contribute to falls
  • Identify strategies you can use to prevent falls in your home and in the community
  • Engage in and develop a fitness plan to improve balance, endurance, strength and mobility to reduce fall risk
  • Increase your confidence to avoid falls and to manage falls, if they do occur.

In a fun, supportive group atmosphere, an expert instructor in rehabilitation, health and wellness will help you develop a personal plan to maximize your safety and well-being. For an application please call 1-800-344-4867, option 1 or click this link for application
