Senior Balance Exercises For Mall Walking

By Suzanne Stoke, Physical Therapist @ Exercise For Balance via

  Well, it is Black Friday “extended season” and time to go hit the malls for prime shopping, as long as you practice a few senior balance exercises first. Please see more information at The Christmas shopping season is a critical time to have adequate stability to make sure you can handle the challenges at the stores and with the crowds. Nowadays, shopping in stores requires a person to be very nimble. Have you noticed that the store aisles are jammed with products that are difficult to maneuver around? I had an interesting discussion with a collage aged marketing major over the holidays. She brilliantly described how stores are set up with multiple product displays in the isles, which are placed to slow the pace of the shoppers. In addition, some high end stores also play slower music that helps to relax the shoppers and create an atmosphere where they will linger in the store for a longer period of time. In addition, during the Christmas shopping season, many stores have a high population of shoppers, which creates greater challenges to one’s balance. As an example, it can be difficult to maneuver through the stores without getting jostled by people coming in one direction or another. In order to prepare for Christmas shopping, it is wise to practice specific senior balance exercises before you head out for your shopping extravaganza.

Senior Balance Exercises For Walking In Crowds

       To stay safe this holiday season when you are out shopping, try a daily regime of senior balance exercises. Before heading out the door to walking in the mall or other department stores or even the neighborhood or on a hiking trail, be sure to perform equilibrium routines to advance your balance skills. One necessary component of good stability is having fast and strong balance reactions at the feet and ankles. Our natural balance reactions can be seen when we stand on one foot and we notice the small, rapid movement occurring around the ankles. Theses quick movements are adjustments to the minute shifting of our body weight over the small base of support, in this case– one foot. To build strong balance reactions, you can work on standing on one foot for twenty seconds, three repetitions in a row, every day of the week. Once you develop quick and strong ankle adjustments, you will be ready for walking around the stacks and stacks of products jammed into the isles at a store or on hiking trails or other uneven terrain. It is best to get going on these equilibrium routines as soon as possible. You can learn these balance exercises and a step by step progression of other appropriate equilibrium routines by following the instruction of a knowledgeable Physical Therapist in the Exercise For Balance DVD.
