  Medical researchers are showing that staying active later in life with strengthening exercises and  senior balance exercises can limit falls and extend independent living. Please see In a recent article published by American Heart Association journal Circulation titled, Older women active a few times weekly lower risk of heart disease, stroke, blood clot, researchers are proving that just a little exercise by older women is better than none, at least when it comes to lowering the risk of heart disease, stroke, blood clots and falling. To be specific, researchers explained that
● Women who performed strenuous physical activity— enough to cause sweating or a faster heart beat — two to three times per week were about 20 percent less likely to develop heart disease, strokes or blood clots compared to participants who reported little or no activity.
● Physical activities associated with reduced risk included walking, gardening, and cycling .
● Fitness programs that include senior balance exercises are optimal for reducing the risk of falling and staying active in later years.

Senior Balance Exercises For Later Years

   To help keep heart disease, blood clots, stroke and falling at bay, medical researchers recommend participating in exercise programs that include  senior balance exercises. Starting with equilibrium routines that include tandem walking is ideal before embarking on an outdoor walking regime. tandem walking involves walking a long a line– heel to toe. You can begin this steadiness routine indoors where you can gently touch a wall or counter until your stability improves.  Once your steadiness is up to par, you can safely transfer your walking regiment to walking outside on paths, sidewalks or hiking trails. You can learn these senior balance exercises like tandem walking and other equilibrium routines by following along with a knowledgeable Physical Therapist in the Exercise For Balance DVD.
