Tai Chi for Health and Fall Prevention – Advanced Level

Course introduction

Fall is by far the most common cause of injury in the elderly population. It is the leading cause of injury-related deaths and injury-related hospitalizations in the elderly population. However, fall is preventable. There is compelling research evidence that Tai Chi is effective in improving health, postural control and balance. Over 13 randomised control trials around the world have consistently demonstrated that Tai Chi is effective in reducing the risk of falls and preventing falls.

Based on the compelling evidence and guided by exercise prescription principles and safety guidelines, ©the Tai Chi for Health and Fall Prevention Program – Advanced  Level is a safe and targeted Tai Chi intervention program for effectively improving health and preventing fall. It contains key Tai Chi techniques designed to increase the strength of lower limb muscles and knee and ankle extensors; expand motion range; improve mobility, dynamic balance and postural control; improve proprioception; overcome the fear of falling; and improve functional abilities, overall health and quality of life. This course is highly recommended for health and exercise professionals who have completed the Tai Chi for Health and Fall Prevention Program – Beginner Level and hope to take their skills to a new level. This course is also ideal for the general population to learn and practice for health improvement and fall prevention after completing the Tai Chi for Health and Fall Prevention Program –  Beginner Level
