Fall Risk, Sensory Stimulation & Perception of Self

Falls are one of the major concerns in the 65+ clientele. Despite the abundance of balance programming and fall reduction products, the US healthcare systems still reports spending $50 billion annually on fall-related costs. Join Naboso Founder and Human Movement Specialist Dr Splichal as she explores how fall reduction programming needs to start with the client's ability to perceive themselves as it relates to both their internal and external environments.

Objectives:

1. Learn how interoception and the perception of "I am" or body ownership is critical to exteroception and the concept of kinesthetic awareness. As soon as we lose this internal / external relationship our fall risk dramatically increases.

2. Learn how to use gravity, muscle contractions, barefoot stimulation and breath to build body ownership and bulletproof our boomers from falls!
