Senior Balance Exercises For Healthy Living

   Making sure you have good stability by practicing senior balance exercises every day will help you avoid falling and injuring your back. Please see more pertinent information at Many times older individuals fall and sustain a compression fracture in their spine. Spinal compression fractures can result in achiness for several weeks. There are several ways to help prevent back pain. As an example, you can strengthen your back by building a stronger set of core muscles which are the abdominal muscles around your trunk and pelvis area that help to support your entire back. One easy exercise that you can do throughout the day involves pulling your belly button in toward your spine without holding your breath. You can do this simple core strengthening exercise while you are sitting, standing, or lying down. Furthermore, the more you practice this exercise the stronger your trunk muscles will become. Another type of core strengthening exercises that you can practice are called Pilates exercises. Pilates is a type of exercise that uses the abdominal and back muscles together to help build a strong set of core muscles around your spine. Daily core strengthening exercise is optimal but practicing these routines two to three times a week is also helpful. Another way you can help prevent back pain is to maintain good posture. Good upright posture also results in a stronger core muscle group and good upright posture helps to protect your spine. As an example try not to hunch over when you are sitting or standing. Make an effort to not lean over the computer or newspaper when you are reading. Furthermore, you can help keep back pain away by getting up and moving every thirty to sixty minutes to help keep your back muscles loose. Last but not least, try to sleep on your back or side and not on your stomach to help minimize any back pain. One final thought is to practice senior balance exercises every day to improve your overall steadiness and reduce the risk of falling and sustaining a spinal compression fracture.

Senior Balance Exercises To Lessen Back Pain

     Daily practicing senior balance exercises will advance your steadiness skills and minimize the possibility of falling and hurting your back. By staying mobile and agile with good stability in your later years, you will be able to keep your back muscles strong and flexible to help minimize back pain with all your movement activities. One such equilibrium routine that will help develop necessary stability involves standing on one foot and stepping up onto a step or stair with the other foot. As you practice this static and dynamic movement routine, be sure to have your abdominal muscles tight to help maintain your core strength. Also, be sure to center your body weight over the middle of your foot as you transition up and down onto the step so that you practice maintaining good steadiness through the center of your body. You can learn how to practice this stability routine and other pertinent senior balance exercises by joining in with the demonstration of balance routines by a knowledgeable physical therapist in the exercise for balance DVD.
