Senior Balance Exercises For Safety This 4th

By Suzanne Stoke, Physical Therapist @ Exercise For Balance via

   Enjoying the 4th of July in a safe manner with your family and friends can be facilitated by practicing senior balance exercises. Please see more information at The Fourth of July is upon us and it is time to show off your spectacular balance abilities and balance techniques at the various celebration events. The Fourth of July is a wonderful time of the year with all the fun activities of the day. Those celebratory events, however, can often be very challenging to ones steadiness abilities. Some of the 4th of July events that family and friends can look forward to include challenging settings like:
-Walking on thick grass at a picnic or barbeque
-Walking on the sand on the beach
-Getting up and down from a lawn chair
-Walking while holding a plate of wiggly corn on the cob
-Standing at, walking to or marching in a parade
-Carrying a cooler or bag of groceries to the picnic table
-Looking  up to enjoy the fireworks
All these activities and challenge your steadiness and create an unfortunate opportunity for a fall. Walking on thick grass it is difficult because of the uneven surface. Walking while holding a plate of food is challenging secondary to dividing your attention to holding the plate steady so as to not drop the food, while at the same time trying to walk without losing your steadiness and taking a fall. Additionally, maneuvering through crowds at a parade or outdoor symphony or concert is equally difficult, in order to keep from being jostled and pushed over. Finally, many times when we look up to enjoy the fireworks we can easily lose our balance and fall backwards. With these challenges before us, the best option is to practice specific stability techniques and senior balance exercises to maximize your steadiness and avoid falling and hurting yourself.

Senior Balance Exercises For The 4th

    Rehearsing senior balance exercises has proven to be a key component in the fight against falling for older individuals. Steadiness routines have been determined by medical researchers through numerous research studies to reduce the risk of falling, enhance leg strength, and boost the individual’s confidence. Balance exercises assist in advancing balance skills and balance reactions in challenging environments that are all around us on the 4th of July celebrations. As an example,  Certain balance techniques make standing and walking on uneven surfaces easier like thick carpet, grass, or icy sidewalks. Stability exercises can facilitate getting up out of a low couch or chair, especially a folding chair on a lawn or grassy park surface, and not losing equilibrium upon standing. Balance specialists, like physical therapists, also have valuable techniques that help to increase safety and prevent falls. Furthermore, There are several ways to safety proof your home for your family gathering to reduce the risk of accidental falls. Therapists can teach viable techniques that help to diminish the risk of falling downstairs. Balance workouts and instability instruction can transform accidental occurrences into preventable situations, thereby lowering the frequency of falling. Now you can perform senior balance exercises in the comfort of your own home by following along with the instruction of a qualified physical therapist in the Exercise For Balance DVD.
