Did you know there are exercises that help you avoid being a fall risk by increasing your strength and bone density? Our balance training program in Shelton, CT was designed for that exact reason.

What is Balance Training?
Balance training involves specific exercises that strengthen your legs and core, giving you stronger stability and balance. Believe it or not, balance training doesn't have an age limit. It can help patients of all walks of life, including:
- Stroke survivors - balance training is a great way for stroke survivors to regain lost stability and increase movement.
- Sarcopenia (muscle loss due to age) - combat sarcopenia with balance exercise to help build muscle mass and increase function.
- Elderly - balance training can help prevent falls by increasing bone density and strength.
Reasons You Might Need Balance Training
While our balance training program was primarily designed to reduce fall risk in patients, there are many other reasons for balance training. This includes:
- Recovering from surgery
- A recent stroke
- Suffering from inner-ear disorders, such as vertigo
- Recovering from an injury
- Lack of balance and confidence to move around your home safely
- Difficulty walking
Our Balance Training Program
Before starting you on a balance training program, we will perform a balance assessment. This helps us gauge your current physical abilities, goals, and which exercises will be best for you.
During this initial assessment, we will analyze how easy (or difficult) specific exercises are for you and what your current balance level is.

Can Poor Balance Be Improved?
Yes! That's the entire goal of our program – poor balance can be improved with consistent balance exercises. That is, as long as you remain active and work through a customized exercise program.
Not everyone has the same balance issues, so finding a general solution online or using the same exercises a friend uses isn't a guaranteed fix for your balance problems.
If you choose Moving With H.O.P.E. for your mobility journey, you'll have the full attention of an Exercise Physiologist who is dedicated to helping you regain your balance and confidence.
How Long Does It Take To Improve Balance?
Balance isn't something that will get better overnight – the length of time it takes to improve your balance depends on what's causing your balance problems and how often you're able to attend exercise sessions. Consistency and effort are key.
For example, someone looking to improve their balance after a recent injury might improve in a few months. On the other hand, someone suffering from a neurological illness could require indefinite balance treatment exercise.
