See  As you may already know from first hand experience, when you go through the traumatic event of falling, you are often left with a gripping fear of falling again. Think about it. Falling and incurring an injury from a fall like a broken hip, wrist, bruised head can be debilitating. a fall can result in overwhelming fear of falling, destroying our very confidence to stay on our feet. That fear of falling can translate into not wanting to do anything active, not wanting to take a walk outdoors, or even not wanting to try to go up or down stairs.

Balance Exercises Boost Confidence

Balance exercises and fear of falling have been a recent topic of research to help encourage us. Büla C.J., Monod S., Hoskovec C. and Rochat S. in their excellent study, Interventions aiming at balance confidence improvement in older adults, looked at balance exercises and balance confidence.  Loss of balance confidence is a frequent condition that affects 20-75% of community-dwelling older persons. Although a recent fall is a common trigger, loss of balance confidence also appears independent of previous experience with falls. Maintaining or improving balance confidence is important to avoid unnecessary, self-imposed restrictions of activity and subsequent disability. Holding another person’s hand or using an assistive device while walking are simple interventions that are used naturally to address poor balance confidence in daily life. However, more complex interventions have also been developed and tested to achieve more sustained improvement in balance confidence.  Results: Five of the 8 interventions that directly targeted balance confidence showed benefits. Interventions that targeted elderly persons reporting poor balance confidence and/or those at risk for falls seemed more likely to be beneficial. Conclusions: Positive and sometimes sustained improvement in balance confidence can be achieved by various interventions among community-dwelling elderly persons.
