Fall Prevention

In New Mexico, falls are the leading cause of injury-related death, emergency room visits, and hospitalization among adults 65 years and older. Falls are not a natural part of aging and many can be prevented! 

The City of Las Cruces Parks and Recreation Department offers Tai Chi: Moving for Better Balance as an evidence-based intervention to help reduce the number of falls among older adults. This fitness class is a balance retraining program and gateway to improved fitness.
