Senior Balance Exercises For Hills

By Suzanne Stoke, Physical Therapist @ Exercise For Balance via

   Generally speaking, when walking on up and down terrain,  older individuals need to practice senior balance exercises  to improve stability and limit the possibility of a fall. Please see more information at  Hills tend to sneak up on us when we are out on a walk, requiring us to be prepared ahead of time. Hills are often on golf courses and walking paths. Stairs and curbs also mimic the actions required to do hills. Hill walking requires both flexibility at the ankles and well as considerable strength in the lower legs to maintain steadiness. Hill walking also requires the individual to control the placement of their body weight in the center of the base of support to maintain both stability and proper posture. By performing senior balance exercises as well as leg strengthening exercises you will be able to establish needed steadiness for walking on hills. 

Senior Balance Exercises For Uneven Terrain

    Many environments around us require older individuals to rehearse senior balance exercises to increase stability and reduce the risk of a fall. One equilibrium routine to start with for hill climbing involves standing on one foot and lifting the other foot up onto a step. If you have an open or free standing step, you can even practice stepping up onto a step and then over the other side back onto the floor to increase steadiness with going both up and down stairs. To make it easier for you, You can practice senior balance exercises and leg strengthening exercises at home by following along with the directions of a qualified Physical Therapist in the Exercise For Balance DVD.
