Senior Balance Exercises For The New Year

By Suzanne Stoke, Physical Therapist @ Exercise For Balance via

   As we head  into the New Year, it is time to make resolutions that can include being more physically active and practicing senior balance exercises to enhance steadiness and reduce the risk of falling. The first of the year is always an exciting time of new beginnings and bright futures. I love anticipating the great things to come at the beginning of the year. I also enjoy planning and dreaming of positive changes that I can make in my life to help live a healthier and greater quality of life. I know for older adults, each passing year can bring challenges as well as promises of a better life. Many aging individuals face health issues that range on a continuum of mild to severe. For all aging individuals, however, there is one common denominator for healthy living and that includes being more physically fit. The foundation for physical fitness includes participating in exercise programs that lead to improved strength, greater flexibility, height and cardiovascular endurance and improved balance abilities. As a result, at the beginning of this year it is highly recommended that all individuals in the aging population make a New Year’s resolution to practice participate in physical activities which are built on a foundation of senior balance exercises.

Senior Balance Exercises For The Year

     Medical research has shown that one in three older adults fall every year but by practicing senior balance exercises those in the aging population can advance their ballots abilities and minimize their potential for a fall. One of the key components to making Equilibrium exercises effective is to perform stability routines on a regular, daily basis. Consistent practice will help to develop the necessary muscle strength and balance skills, connecting the balance center in the brain with the balance reactions in the feet and ankles. For that reason, you will want to rehearse your equilibrium routines every day. As an example, while you are brushing your teeth in the morning and in the evenings you can practice a steadiness routine that involves standing on one foot. This stability exercise includes standing on one foot for twenty seconds and repeating that activity three times on each foot. Since you are standing near a sink or counter, you can hold on to the stable surface as needed while you are performing this exercise. You can learn how to correctly rehearse this single leg standing routine and other senior balance exercises by following the demonstration of a knowledgeable physical therapist in the exercise for balance DVD.
