About This Event

  • Event Type:Mruk Family Center on Aging

"When we’re young, we take staying upright for granted. We don’t really worry about falling—it might not even cross our minds.

But over the years, things change. The body’s systems that detect gravity, identify exact body positioning at any moment, determine what you need to do to stay upright, and promote balance and stability become less effective, says Caroline DeGroot, M.P.T., a physical therapist at Athletico Physical Therapy’s vestibular program, which focuses on helping adults improve their balance and stability."
