Senior Balance Exercises For Spring

       As the days grow warmer and the nights grow longer it is time to practice senior balance exercises for all your outdoor activities. Please see more information at http://www.exerciseforbalance.com/buy-now  Springtime is a lovely time of the year when the trees and flowers are beginning to bud and new life is all around us. Spring reminds us to get out and enjoy the warm weather and lovely sunshine. Springtime invites us to embark on many outdoor endeavors such as gardening, golfing, playing tennis, playing bocce ball, hiking, taking the dog for a walk or taking a long walk on a sandy beach.   Take gardening for example. During gardening activities, you often bend down to pull weeds, plant seeds or flowers, pull the hose into a new position, step over edging, rocks or railroad ties. These movements require a substantial amount of stability during combinations of dynamic and static movements where you stand on one foot and move the other foot into a different position, while stepping over objects or stepping onto uneven surfaces.  Before heading out for a lovely time outdoors, however, it is essential to practice specific senior balance exercises to boost stability and limit any possibility of a fall.

Senior Balance Exercises For Outdoor Activities

    As you prepare to enjoy a lovely spring season, be sure to rehearse specific senior balance exercises that will help you improve steadiness and minimize the possibility of a fall. For the necessary balance abilities to tackle the great outdoors during this upcoming Spring season, your balance routines need to include challenges to the balance reactions at your ankles.  When gardening, playing golf or  walking on trails or any uneven surfaces, your ankles respond to the different terrain by quickly moving back and forth to correct your constantly changing balance point. You can maximize your balance reaction abilities by practicing simple balance training routines at home, like standing with one foot directly in front of the other. This position of standing with one foot in front of the other is called tandem standing. During tandem standing, your ankles will move back and forth to keep you upright and to build stronger balance reactions to help keep you upright on uneven surfaces. Another specific balance training technique to practice before you will step outside is to stand on one foot while you turn your head side to side. That specific balance technique will mimic walking outside and looking at the outstanding beauty, while you stay safe walking on the trail or on the golf course. So before you head out to enjoy the wonderful spring weather, please practice these and other senior balance exercises that are presented by a knowledgeable physical therapist in the Exercise For Balance DVD.
