Frail 2 Fit Balance Rehabilitation Program…Improving Balance, Restoring Lives!
Since Northern Michigan Sports Medicine Center launched their Frail 2 Fit Balance Rehabilitation program last fall, we have been amazed at the response from our clients and results we’ve seen so far. Patients who have completed this program have reduced their fall risks and fall frequency, identified and eliminated fall risks, and established a program they are able to continue with on their own to maintain their improvements.
More importantly, we’ve seen our patients get back their confidence and functional mobility.
Martha Landis, a recent patient, expresses her experience with the Frail 2 Fit Balance Rehabilitation Program:
“Upon reading about the Frail 2 Fit program at the Sports Medicine Center, I thought I was not in either category. But I did realize I could use some help in regaining my former self-assurance in walking and using stairs. I decided to throw out my pride and admit I could use some help. This was the best decision I've made.
After two months, my balance is so much better. I can get in and out of a chair without pushing off, and I'm not hesitant when stepping off a curb.
The program at Sports Medicine Center is comprehensive in building muscle tone all over. Building confidence in oneself is the key to overcoming uncertainty. I recommend the program to "frail" people because we want to eliminate that word.” Martha Landis. Charlevoix, MI.
The most common thing we hear from our clients is “I wish I would have done this sooner.”
