Improving your balance at any age!

Each year we have annual checkups for our vision and dental hygiene so why do we ignore our strength, balance and flexibility that decreases with age. Do you find yourself saying I am too old to do that activity? There is a solution to slowing the aging process.

Northern Michigan Sports Medicine Center offers a Frail 2 Fit Balance Rehabilitation Program to identify risk factors whether you are highly fit and active or struggling with your balance and strength.

Don’t let the aging process be an excuse for not being active. We can help you get fit and keep you active while feeling young.
