Falls are the leading cause of injury in adults aged 65 and over.

BEFORE THE FALL™ is a Physical Therapy practice and training program to help you regain the kinds of dynamic balance skills that you need for everyday activities, like walking, stepping over obstacles, up and down steps and the like.

The program was created by Naomi Azulay—a Physical Therapist in practice since 1980—and is based on the most current research on balance, gait, and fall prevention.

“As a personal trainer I found the exercises in the Before the Fall training program to be very applicable to my clientele and to myself, a fit 74 year old. The motor skills Naomi teaches are timeless reminders of how to move safely in daily life. To remember to initiate a sit-to-stand squat with a contraction of the glutes is basic anytime you rise from a seated position. And consciously practicing a heel strike prevents a fall while walking or running, especially on an uneven surface. This I know having previously fallen twice on the same uneven surface before taking Naomi’s program!”
