Fall Prevention Blog  Posture Core Body and Mind Balance

As you get older it becomes more and more important to take care if your body, especially if you’re living with a disease. Staying strong and active can help you avoid falls, which generally only lead to minor bruises, but can be far serious. These serious consequences include fractures and broken bones that have been known to cause permanent disability and sometimes death. There are a few simple things you can do to avoid falls such as adding handrails, removing debris from walkways, and making sure your house is well lit.

It is even more important to keep your body strong and active so if you are to fall, your body is more equipped to deal with the pressure.

We cannot stress how important it is to keep the body and the mind active as you continue to get older. Staying active in exercise programs will help you improve your balance and agility through resistance training. The particular program you choose should be catered to your individual needs and concerns so you can achieve your goals. As you get older, it is also important to remember your posture—core exercises and general movement that tests your stability will help you with good posture and core strength.

Even if you have your health, it’s never too early to start being active. The more you move, the less chance you have of experiencing complications in the future like osteoporosis. We have Exercise Physiologists and Physiotherapists specially trained to help you develop your perfect regimen based on your abilities, physical condition and goals.

In this instance, an athlete was originally diagnosed with minor quadriceps muscle strain and was treated for four weeks, with unsatisfactory results. When he came to our clinic, the muscle was not healing, and the patients’ muscle tissue had already begun to atrophy.

Upon examination using MSUS, we discovered that he had a full muscle thickness tear that had been overlooked by his previous provider. To mitigate damage and promote healing, surgery should have been performed immediately after the injury occurred. Because of misdiagnosis and inappropriate treatment, the patient now has permanent damage that cannot be corrected.

The most important advantage of Ultrasound over MRI imaging is its ability to zero in on the symptomatic region and obtain imaging, with active participation and feedback from the patient. Using dynamic MSUS, we can see what happens when patients contract their muscles, something that cannot be done with MRI. From a diagnostic perspective, this interaction is invaluable.
