Senior Balance Exercises For Healthy Living

By Suzanne Stoke, Physical Therapist @ Exercise For Balance via

  Staying active, independent and healthy is a high priority among many older individuals and practicing  senior balance exercises as part of a daily fitness program can contribute to both health  and fall prevention. Please see Medical researchers have proven that consistent physical activity, including balance exercises, is associated with a number of health issues including decreased risk of death from cardiovascular disease, prevention of type 2 diabetes mellitus, colon and breast cancer, and osteoporosis. However, even after disease presentation, participation in regular physical activity and equilibrium routines continues to play an important role in the management of any disease, well into the retirement years. Older adults are a group that is particularly vulnerable to chronic disease and disability especially secondary to falls, and physical activity maintains or increases quality of life by preserving independence.

Senior Balance Exercises To Maintain Independence

   One of the keys to aging well is to avoid injuries from falls and maintain an active and healthy lifestyle through a regular routine of senior balance exercises and fitness activities. Medical professionals now know that There is no age limit to the benefits of physical activity. Fitness programs can slow and reverse age-related loss of strength, endurance, and flexibility. Further, participation in regular physical activity through the middle-age years and into retirement may delay biological aging by 10 to 12 years. Aging has been described as a normal and gradual physiologic process of structural and functional loss, with a decline noted in middle and late adulthood. Predetermined changes that occur with aging include decreasing lung capacity,  flexibility, and sensorial acuity, as well as a general slowing of movement and loss of muscle tone. Physiological functions deteriorate, but decline is not considered a disease. Certain problems that once were considered inevitable in aging are, in reality,  related to disuse. From a medical stand point, disuse actually exacerbates the naturally occurring changes. It is known that regular physical activity, including balance exercise, increases independence and physiologic reserve, helps prevent falls and associated injuries, prevents cognitive decline, manages chronic disease and pain, and improves mental outlook, particularly in depression.
