Senior Balance Exercises For Safety With Heights

By Suzanne Stoke, Physical Therapist @ Exercise For Balance via

   Sometimes as we age, we tend to feel less confident with movement activities, which can be helped by practicing senior balance exercises. Please see more information at  In particular, older adults suffer with a greater amount of fear of falling while in elevated situations like when stepping down from the top step of a flight of stairs or when standing at the top of an elevator. Let’s say that you are on vacation in Paris going up in the Eiffel Tower or in New York at the top of the Freedom Towers. The visual aspect of being elevated can be daunting. In addition, the concept of having a greater distance to fall is also unnerving. Thankfully, there are certain stability techniques that can be implemented to both improve balance abilities and to minimize the amount of stress related to fear of falling.

Senior Balance Exercises For Elevated Places

    By applying specific steadiness principles and by rehearsing senior balance exercises, older individuals can minimize their fear of falling and feel safer in environments that include HEIGHTS. As an example, you can concentrate on the sensory input from your feet touching the floor to connect the sense of touch feedback to the balance center in your brain. By focusing on the sense of touch between your feet and the floor, you will not only be more grounded and steady but you will also feel more anchored. You can combine using sensory input with equilibrium routines to enhance your overall stability. As an example, you can concentrate on THE sense of touch between your foot and the floor while you are performing a single leg standing routine where you stand on one foot for about twenty seconds. You can learn these stability techniques and senior balance exercises by joining in with the instructions of a knowledgeable Physical Therapist in the Exercise For Balance DVD.
