Senior Balance Exercises To Limit Imbalance

By Suzanne Stoke, Physical Therapist @ Exercise For Balance via www.exerciseforbalance.com

 One important factor to help with increasing stability and reducing imbalance is practicing senior balance exercises  on a daily basis. Please see more information at   http://www.exerciseforbalance.com/buy-now Many older adults tend to feel unsteady on their feet when they are turning in the bathroom or kitchen, getting up from a chair, walking up or down stairs or even just with general walking or standing. There are several safety techniques that will help aging individuals enhance their steadiness when they are on their feet. As an example, you can start with standing on your feet with your feet in a shoulder width a part position and center your body weight in the middle of your feet. Once you are in this position, you can concentrate on the sense of touch between your feet and the floor. Concentrating on the sensory input from your feet will dramatically enhance the connection between your feet and the balance center in your brain.  Focusing on the sense of touch from your feet will therefore help you to be more grounded and less unstable. Focusing your attention on the placement of your body weight in the middle of your feet will therefore minimize the amount of sway your body goes through and increase your sense of confidence with being more stable

Senior Balance Exercises For Better Stability

   A daily dose of appropriate senior balance exercises will develop necessary stability for all movement activities. One aspect of increasing steadiness with movement patterns is that the equilibrium rouitnes need to be performed on a consistent basis rather than at sporadic intervals. By practicing stability exercises at a minimum frequency of three to five times a week will result in improved muscle strength in the lower legs, increased flexibility at the ankles to adapt to changing terrain under foot and stronger balance skills, which all lead to a lower risk of falling with movement patterns. You can rehearse senior balance exercises every day in the comfort of your own home by joining in with the instruction of a qualified Physical Therapist in the Exercise For Balance DVD.
