Balance exercises and the benefits of balance training are hugely important for those who are distinguished in the category of “fallers”. Stability exercises are by far the best means to help with preventing falls and the debilitating injuries that occurs from falling. We know that as we age past 60 years old, our balance system begins to decline, but what are the other factors that add to the risk of falling? New information is now available  that looks at the additional risk factors that lead to a greater risk of falling for our seniors. See

 Senior Balance Exercises To Fight Against Falling

Balance exercises are the basic means to prevent falls, but lets review the other components of health and fitness that effects falling. Current research has investigated the risk of falling and the impact of physical fitness in aging adults.  In specific, the researchers set out to explain what factors lead to falling in older adults. The aim of this analysis was to determine the correlation between the falling risk and  physical fitness in seniors, delineating the top parameters affecting the falling risk, and preparing an evaluation procedure for the medical department working on this issue for the older people in retirement homes. One specific study includes 60 persons whose mean age was 73.3 ± 6.6 years. Their demographic characteristics, cognitive function, their balance, falling risk and their physical fitness level have been evaluated. Reports have shown that the falling risk increases with declining of upper and lower extremity muscle strength, aerobic endurance, agility and dynamic balance performance. Agility and dynamic balance performance were mostly relevant with falling risk. The facts concluded that the aging persons’ falling risk and physical fitness level should be evaluated in some intervals. According to their falling risks and physical fitness level, the rehabilitation programs should be established to decrease their falling risk, and to increase lower and upper extremity muscle strength, aerobic endurance and especially their agility and dynamic balance performance.
