Balance Exercises  To Stay Out Of The Emergency Room

By Suzanne Stoke, Physical Therapist @ Exercise For Balance via

   Balance exercises are to emergency rooms like apples are to doctors. We have all heard the old saying, “An apple a day keeps the Doctor away.”  Similarly, by practicing stability exercises every day you can improve balance and reduce the risk of falling and hurting you yourself. Statistics tell us that ninety-two percent of the admissions to the emergency room are due to falling and the injuries resulting from a fall.  Often times those falls can result in serious and debilitating injuries for older adults such as wrist fractures or hip fractures. Following a fracture, seniors typically lose their previous level of function including decreased mobility, difficulties with dressing, housework and daily activities like preparing food.  The best line of defense is to avoid falling and taking a trip to the emergency room. Equilibrium exercises are the key to enhancing balance abilities and preventing falls. Please see

Balance Exercises Help Keep You Out Of The Emergency Room

    Balance exercises are the key ingredient to staying on your feet and eliminating the possibility of falling.  With stability exercises, you are able to develop a strong connection between the brain the body to help maximize balance abilities. Steadiness exercises advance both the strength and reaction time that the muscles in the ankles use to correct the body’s weight shifting, which prevents the loss of balance and subsequent falling.  With specific balance techniques you can also learn to concentrate on the sensory feedback from your feet and ankles, which helps to enhance steadiness with all standing and movement activities.  Now, you can be instructed in the best balance techniques and follow a long with a proven balance exercise routine developed by an experienced Physical Therapist, with the Exercise For Balance DVD.
