This video gives first hand accounts of the probability of falls by someone who is afflicted with Parkinson’s Disease.
Having to be concerned about something as basic as balance.
Falling and its frequency is one of the highest predictors of future falls as it breeds confidence issues and makes them more timid during movement which most likely will result in a higher frequency of falling.
One of the biggest reasons is that the centers of your brain that control the feeling of falling don’t respond as quickly as they would normally so the person doesn’t realize they are falling as fast as they have in the past and then to get muscles to move to prevent the fall.
Exercise and physical therapy are good options for those that might be experiencing a rise in the frequency of falls or probability of falls.
