Falls are the number one cause of injury in adults over 55.
1 out of 3 adults over 65 fall each year
Falling once doubles your chances of falling again.
Falling is NOT inevitable
Tai Chi has been proven to be a specific fall risk reduction exercise program that we are happy to offer at Iowa Methodist Medical Center. Tai chi combines the physical components of leg strength, flexibility, range of motion, and reflexes; along with the mindfulness of coordination and balance.
$25 for 16 sessions of Tai Chi
