Cognitive Function As We
Breakthrough Program exercises refine and sharpen the ability
of the brain to process information efficiently and maintain
cognitive performance that gradually weakens as we grow older.
The power of the program comes from improvements it makes in
the balance and sensory integration
Balance and cognitive decline are two of the
most important challenges that naturally accompany
aging. One of the main reasons people over the age of 60
visit a doctor is because of a balance related issue. In
the case of mental and physiological sharpness as we age,
there is mounting evidence that supports the wisdom of the
cliche "use it or lose it"!
Current research has confirmed that our brains
maintain "plasticity" as we age, meaning that neural network
development does not remain fixed and that, in fact, you can
teach "old dogs" new tricks. If you could do something for as
little as 15 minutes, twice each day, to reduce or delay or
the onset of balance and cognitive decline, would you?
Even more enticing to older clients is the idea that you are
never too old to increase the brain's processing power and the real prospect of improving the
quality of life even as you mature beyond the family-raising
The powerful Learning Breakthrough Program™ has
been used for decades by developmental optometrists, among
others, to treat stroke victims and patients recovering
from traumatic brain injuries. The brain changing aspects
of the simple and fun program activities will improve your
balance, dexterity, motor skills, coordination, memory,
comprehension and other cognitive functioning.
Consider the Learning Breakthrough Program™ as
"brain fitness" or "brain weight lifting" which is exactly
what it is. There are many things experts say we can do to
improve the quality of our daily living as we age. Genetics,
environmental influences and other "unknowns" all have an
impact as to how we age. If you keep your brain
processing as strong as possible, you improve your chances of
having a better quality of life as time goes on.
So many injuries occur as we age that are a
direct result of falls and other balance related difficulties.
On the surface, the Learning Breakthrough Program™ is balance
remediation training program which will improve your balance or vestibular sense. The other program activities combined
with the balance challenge that is integral to the program
improves the way the brain processes information. This
can lead to better cognitive functioning which tends to
decline as we age.
Keep up with physical conditioning like aerobic,
walking, strengthening and stretching. Add balance and sensory
integration stimulation with the Learning Breakthrough
Program™ and you will have enhanced your chances of aging
gracefully and productively.
