Balance Training For Seniors

Balance training is an important component of keeping older women safe and healthy. Please see Balance training can assist older ladies to stay on their feet and prevent falls, which is one of the greatest risks of growing older for elderly women. Statistics tell us that one in three seniors fall every year, resulting in debilitating falls. For older women, a fall often leads to hip fractures, which drastically changes ones quality of life and independence.


Balance Training To Help Older Women

Balance training and balance exercises can be of assistance to older women. Research by Stevens JA, Olson S. has shown that the leading factors that contribute to falls in the elderly include  increasing age, muscle weakness, functional limitations, environmental hazards, use of psychoactive medications, and a history of falls. Age is also a risk factor for hip fracture. Women aged > or = 85 years are nearly eight times more likely than women aged 65-74 years to be hospitalized for hip fracture. White women aged > or = 65 years are at higher risk for hip fracture than black women. Other risk factors for hip fracture include lack of physical activity, osteoporosis, low body mass index, and a previous hip fracture. Research has also shown that balance exercises can improve balance and reduce the risk and incidence of falling.
