  1. This is great – thank you for helping keep seniors safe from dangerous falls! More fall prevention tips, as well as suggestions on how to fall more safely, are outlined here: https://www.continuumcare.com/preparing-for-a-fall-could-be-your-best-fall-prevention-plan/

  2. Found the exercises excellent. They echo what I do with my physiotherapist and what we do in the physio-gym activities. Well done fellas – good one.

  3. I’ve been noticing that I loss my balance while walking more from walking normal gate to walking with a cane and in crowds I use a walker… Cerebral palsy from birth

  4. Noise in the background is distracting but I love the exercise and see great promise for my walking and balance

  5. Is this vdo made when 90's ?
    Two doctor have very big tie.
    I feel like meet doctor 20year ago at hospital.

  6. YOu do not speak so hard-of-hearing elderly can understand you. Much mubbling, fast talking — I can't show this to my father.

  7. I appreciate all of your videos. Thank you. I’ve fallen and thank goodness I am able to get up. I have MS with weakness and I’m always looking for activities to improve my balance.

  8. Older people falling is mostly caused by us walking too fast for our age and not being able to handle tripping over defects in the walk ways. Our reflexes are slower, and our musculature is weaker so recovering from the initial trip is harder to achieve than for a younger person. If we remember our age and slow down we get much safer
    Otherwise can I recommend cleaning out the ears with ear wax solution? Great help to balance, I promise you

  9. You helped my Stroke Husband to walk better. Today he was tested on the blood flow on his Stroke side. It was excelent. Thank you.

  10. I really have learned a lot from the two of you. You explain things so that we can understand the exercise and why not to do it other ways that might seem easier. You always explain the whys and the what is best and why it is best to do it certain ways. Thank you both for these videos that have helped me more than I can say. Keep up the good work. You surely have helped a lot of people improve their health and lives.

  11. These guys aren't experts. Did anyone out there notice that the only posted comments these guys kept were POSITIVE ones? Can't take a little criticism there, Bob and Brad?????

  12. You guys are great and informative. But you should rename your video to "9 Balance Exercises……" instead of "7" because that is what I counted! Did you take math in college? (joking!)

  13. If these two guys would just STOP talking to each other, this video would only be 8 minutes long. Also, we don't need to watch one guy doing the exercises while the other one stands around making comments. Get over your ego's and make a decent video !

  14. Hi sir , I have very weak calf muscles…and I have bilateral foot drop hence unable to balance .can you please help me out

  15. When you stepped up on the little bench you did not say which leg you step up and down with such as do you step up with injured leg or good leg?

  16. I got my left knee replacement surgery done about four months ago.Now my physio says that my pain and discomfort are because of slight tilt on left side causing extra pressure on left knee.
    What do you suggest me to correct my posture while walking.

  17. First I’m 79. I was having problems with my feet and my balance, where I live in the UK we have streets that are cobbled and I felt very unsteady walking on them so avoided them, about three months ago I decided I must go to the doctor, I decided to look on line and came across a web site that recommended heel and toe walking, I tried it right away, my feet don’t bother me at all now and I make a point of walking down the cobbled streets on purpose now because I feel so confident.
