Have you turned down a chance to go out with family or friends because you were concerned about falling? Have you cut down on a favorite activity because you might fall? People who experience a fear of falling often limit their activities, which can result in loss of strength, reduced muscle tone and balance problems, making the risk of falling greater. This is one of the unfortunate results of having problems with your balance. If you do not do something to improve it, most of the time it just continues to get worse.
