   More and more these days older individuals are encouraged to manage their own health and participate in fitness regimes, healthy eating and senior balance exercises  to maintain stability and avoid falling. Please see more information at http://www.exerciseforbalance.com/buy-now For years, insurance companies and healthcare providers have been encouraging those in the aging population to be more proactive in their own health care. As an example, doctors and nurses recommend that older folks monitor their chronic conditions like Diabetes, Hypertension or Chronic Pain, Fall History. More and more decision making is moved towards the patient regarding what treatments to have and whether to have treatments for their condition at all. For many senior citizens, that can be daunting. Many aging individuals feel overwhelmed by trying to keep up with their complex choices. For example, there are numerous health conditions where there are multiple good options for treatments and limited direction on which treatment path is the best option.” In one subset of health conditions–balance abilities and fall prevention, there are a few straight forward treatments that have been proven to be effective as well as easily managed at home. Medical researchers have shown that older adults who practice equilibrium routines on a regular basis have better overall stability and a decreased potential for falling. The other good news is that balance exercises are easy to perform at home and require no equipment.

Senior Balance Exercises At Home

   Now You can practice specific senior balance exercises in the comfort of your own home with easy to use tools and simple to follow concepts. As an example, to increase your steadiness with walking, climbing stairs and stepping in and out of the bath tub, you can rehearse a single leg standing routine. Single leg standing involves standing near a sink or counter if you need to hold on and stand on one foot for twenty seconds, centering your body weight in the middle of your arch. You can perform three repetitions on each foot. Single leg standing will enhance your static stability. To improve dynamic steadiness for walking, getting out of a chair from sitting to standing or turning in a small space like a kitchen or bathroom, you can perform tandem walking. In tandem walking, you walk along a line with the heel of one foot directly touching the toes of the other foot. Tandem walking enhances dynamic mobility tasks. The best part is that you can safely and easily practice these single leg standing and tandem walking activities in the comfort of your own home by following the direction provided by a knowledgeable Physical Therapist in the Exercise For Balance DVD.
