Neuroplasticity and neuroprotection provide us with a brain that can adapt not only to changes inflicted by damage but also to experiences. With this understanding, we can intervene to help with balance, gait and reducing fall risk in our patients. Proprioception is also an integral part of movement, somatosensory input, gait and balance that is impacted by aging and disease as well. We can intervene to help the somatosensory input to ultimately reduce fall risk. Evidence shows that early interventions lead to the best outcomes.
