By Suzanne Stoke, Physical Therapist @ Exercise For Balance via

  As the population across the globe ages, medical scientists and medical professionals agree that staying physically active with fitness programs as well as curbing the incidence of falling by performing  senior balance exercises is extremely important. Please see more information at Medical scientists have recognized a notable trend that is going on across the globe. The world is facing a situation without precedent: We soon will have more older people than children and more people at extreme old age than ever before. As both the proportion of older people and the length of life increase throughout the world, key questions arise. Will population aging be accompanied by a longer period of good health, a sustained sense of well-being, and extended periods of social engagement and productivity, or will it be associated with more illness, disability, and dependency? How will aging affect health care and social costs? Are these futures inevitable, or can we act to establish a physical and social infrastructure that might foster better health and wellbeing in older age? How will population aging play out differently for low-income countries that will age faster than their counterparts have, but before they become industrialized and wealthy? Managing population aging also requires building needed infrastructure and institutions as soon as possible. The longer we delay, the more costly and less effective the solutions are likely to be. Population aging is a powerful and transforming demographic force. We are only just beginning to comprehend its impacts at the national and global levels. One common thread that medical researchers have found is that older individuals are able to maintain a healthy, active and independent lifestyle as they follow a few key components:
-Eating a healthy diet
-Staying physically fit and active
– Getting good sleep
-Practicing senior balance exercises to minimize the risk and incidence of falling and sustaining an injury from a fall.
