Senior Balance Exercises For All

By Suzanne Stoke, Physical Therapist @ Exercise For Balance via

    We all remember the nimble Jack from our early nursery rhymes. Perhaps jack practiced his senior balance exercises to enhance his nimbleness. See more at We hear of Jack’s excellent steadiness:
Jack be nimble
Jack be quick
Jack jumped over the candlestick
For older adults, the ability to be nimble diminishes with age and often leads to debilitating falls. Medical researchers tout that one in three older adults fall every year. Many of us know family members who have fallen and we cringe to think that the next fall might be the big one that leads to a wrist or hip fracture, ending up in a nursing home or assisted care facility.  Medical researchers as well as healthcare professionals like doctors, physician assistants and physical therapists all agree that aging individuals can improve their overall steadiness by consistently rehearsing senior balance exercises.

Senior Balance Exercises To Improve Steadiness

    Even Jack Needs to practice senior balance exercises in his old age. JACK MAY have been nimble in his youth, but in later years it has been noted that senior citizens need to practice specific equilibrium routines to enahnce steadiness.  One such stability routine is tandem standing where you stand with your feet in a line in a heel to toe manner.  In this tandem stance position, you will cahllenge your balance reactions at your feet and ankles. In his later years, Jack could have also done an easier stability routine as a precurser to jumping the candelstick. For example, he could have stood one one foot and swung the other foot forwards and backwards to mimic a static and dynamic balance exercise. You can learn these and other senior balance exercises by following the direction of a knowledgeable Physical Therapist in the Exercise For Balance DVD.
