Senior Balance Exercises For Brisk Walking

By Suzanne Stoke, Physical Therapist @ Exercise For Balance via

  Now that Thanksgiving day is over, it is the right time to get out and go for a brisk walk or a “turkey trot” to burn off a few calories, right after practicing a few senior balance exercises to get your stability set. Please see more information at  So, after all the turkey, dressing, sweet potatoes and mashed potatoes, dinner rolls, pumpkin and pecan pies, it is time to go outside for a brisk walk to burn off some of those tasty calories. Before heading out for a vigorous walk, it is essential to rehearse specific senior balance exercises in order to establish necessary balance for walking on various terrain. As an example, when walking on thick grass, icy sidewalks, dirt hiking trails or other paths, your feet and ankles have to adjust to the uneven surfaces in order to keep you upright. There are certain equilibrium routines that can help you develop strong and fast balance reactions at your feet and ankles which will help you adapt quickly to the uneven walking surfaces.

Senior Balance Exercises For Safe Walking

    After your Thanksgiving Festivities have been exhausted,  Begin your health promoting walking program with senior balance exercises for good stability and fall risk prevention. You can start building a strong platform of steadiness with one equilibrium routine called tandem walking where you walk along a line heel to toe. Tandem walking develops the balance reactions that are needed for walking outdoors on various surfaces. Tandem walking should be rehearsed on a regular basis, which will promote the necessary control of how your body weight shifts over your feet during all walking movements. You can learn how to perform tandem walking and other senior balance exercises by following along with a knowledgeable Physical Therapist In the Exercise For Balance DVD.
