Strong Reactions With Senior Balance Exercises

By Suzanne Stoke, Physical Therapist @ Exercise For Balance via

   Being able to respond with necessary stability to uneven ground or various textures like thick carpet can be enhanced through daily practice of senior balance exercises. Please see more at Having strong and fast balance reactions at the feet and ankles is critical to remaining upright on various surfaces that we walk on. For older adults, usually age brings stiffer ankle joints and weaker lower leg muscles. As a result, medical researchers have been investigating the effectiveness of participating in stability routines for those in the aging population. As an example, a study published by Levinger P, et al titled, Biomechanical balance response during induced falls under dual task conditions in people with knee osteoarthritis, looked at balance abilities for those older individuals who have osteoarthritis of the knees. The researchers stated that people with knee osteoarthritis are at twice the risk of falling compared to older people without knee osteoarthritis. The study, therefore, investigated the biomechanical response of the trunk and lower limb joints during a forward induced fall under different task conditions in people with and without knee osteoarthritis. The researchers found that when simulating a forward fall, participants with osteoarthritis demonstrated difficulty in absorbing the impact and slowing down the forward momentum of the body during a recovery step. Moreover, poor dynamic postural control was demonstrated as task complexity increased. As a result, the medical scientists as well as healthcare providers like physical therapists and doctors recommend that older adults, especially those with osteoarthritis should rehearse certain senior balance exercises every day to maximize their balance abilities.

Senior Balance Exercises For Those With Osteoarthritis

  To help those with Osteoarthritis, medical providers and medical researchers suggest that older adults perform senior balance exercises on a daily basis. equilibrium routines have been shown to increase strength and speed of balance reactions at the ankles, which in turn helps with overall steadiness during movement activities. You can learn which steadiness routines to rehearse and how to preform those senior balance exercises by following the direction of a knowledgeable Physical Therapist in the Exercise For Balance DVD.
