   As football season commences next week, it is essential to prepare by practicing senior balance exercises. Please see more information at The fall is a wonderful time of the year to enjoy cooler weather, beautiful changes in the scenery and the beginning of football season. Football Sundays can often include many activities that require having good stability. As an example, it is important to be able to have adequate steadiness in the kitchen when you are preparing barbecue chicken wings, nachos with cheese dip, or wonderful spicy chili. Cooking in the kitchen often involves bending up and down to get pots and pans out of the cupboard. Cooking also involves turning side to side and in full circles when getting food out of the refrigerator or moving food from the stove to the countertop. These movements require steadiness and specific static and dynamic balance. Preparing food requires been steady on your feet with chopping vegetables or stirring stew over the stove. Food preparation also requires the ability to remain stable while turning in small spaces. In addition, football season also requires balance for other activities such as walking while carrying a plate of food or a drink. Watching a football game for many individuals also includes the ability to stand up quickly from the couch or La-Z-Boy chair to encourage favorite team players or yell at the referee. With all the movement activities involved in football season, it is imperative for older individuals to prepare for football season by practicing certain senior balance exercises before the games begin.

     Enjoying watching a football game is one of the highlights and pleasures of this fall season and can be made more safe by practicing senior balance exercises before hand. as an example, To help with the movement of getting up and out of the chair quickly and safely, you can practice a similar equilibrium routine ahead of time. For instance, you can begin with sitting in a chair or couch and quickly standing to your feet. Once you are on your feet, center your body weight in the middle of your arches and concentrate on the sense of touch between your feet and the floor. By centering your bodyweight, you will connect the sensory input from your feet to the balance center in your brain, This focused attention on the sense of touch from your feet will enhance your overall steadiness. Before a game, you can also rehearse making turning movements in the kitchen near a counter or sink that you can hang on to if need be. Practicing turning movements in advance will help to develop excellent balance skills which can be used during food preparation activities.  You can practice these and other senior balance exercises in the comfort of your own home by following the direction of a qualified physical therapist in the exercise for balance DVD.
