Tai Chi for Arthritis and Fall Prevention

UHS partners with the Broome County Office for Aging to bring this program to area senior centers, free of charge. 

According to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), one in three adults over the age of 65 fall each year. Treatment of injuries due to falls is the most expensive health cost, estimated 2015 by CDC to be 31 billion dollars per year in USA. 

With regular practice, Tai Chi improves balance by strengthening muscles and coordination. At the same time, it strengthens the mind, thereby improving calmness and confidence in not falling. Thus, both physically and mentally, tai chi is an extremely effective exercise for fall prevention. 

UHS Trauma Services and Injury Prevention will be at the Broome West Senior Center in Endicott, from 12 a.m. to 12 p.m., every Wednesday and Friday, starting May 8, 2024.
