Safe Landing Strategies: How to Soften a Fall @Community Room
April 17 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
Join Jason Adour, a physical therapist at the Maine Strong Balance Center in Scarborough, to learn how you can reduce your risk of falling. Jason’s professional experience has included geriatric medicine, sports medicine and neurological rehabilitation after strokes or brain injuries, which have all included a focus on balance. He’ll discuss the anatomy and physiology of balance, teach tips to help reduce your fall risk and demonstrate how to fall safely. This program is designed to help you feel confident in how to minimize possible injury. Falling happens at all ages and can happen anywhere. This program is sponsored by The Peaks Island Health Center and Friends of the Peaks Island Library.
