Doing exercises that strengthen your leg and core muscles and improve balance will reduce your risk of falling. It’s that simple.

We don’t mean to go on about it, truly we don't, but we have the clinical evidence to back us up. We’re trying to get as many people into exercise as we can.

Exercise can also:

  • keep your bones strong
  • give you more energy
  • help you sleep better
  • help control blood pressure, blood sugar levels and weight.

Oh, and it can make you feel good about yourself too!

See you medical centre today to find out what exercise is right for you.
