Balance Exercises To Prevent Slips, Trips & Falls

By Suzanne Stoke, Physical Therapist @ Exercise For Balance via
    Balance exercises are essential to perform on a daily basis to prevent the common slips and trips that often result in debilitating falls. Please see Unfortunately, statistics for falling among those in the older generation are horrendous. The numbers tell us that one in three individuals over the age of sixty years old are destined to fall each year, often incurring injuries such as wrist, hip, shoulder fractures, concussions and painful bruising. The cost of such falls for the individual are enormous from loss of mobility and independence to a huge financial burden. The cost of these falls on the overall healthcare system are also devastating. By understanding common mechanisms of falling, how to prevent them, and how to perform balance exercises to reduce the incidence of falling, we can all avoid the tremendous costs to each person and the nation’s healthcare system as a whole.

Balance exercises and balance techniques are essential to limit the slips and trips that lead to falling in the home. Many times, people fall in the home secondary to tripping over throw rugs or clutter on the floor. Be sure to remove all books, shoes and any other items that end up on the floor and can be tripped over. Additionally, remove all throw rugs in the kitchen, hallway and any other place where you may catch your toe, trip and fall. Furthermore, slips often occur in the home in the bathroom and the kitchen. Be sure to examine the floor before entering to make sure there are no slippery wet spots.
