Balance Training To Be Safe In Later Years

By Suzanne Stoke, Physical Therapist @ Exercise For Balance via

Balance training is a key component of staying safe and reducing falls for older individuals. Unfortunately, as the years go by our balance system components undergo a gradual decline in effectiveness and function. For some, that decline can be accelerated with a fall, a medical condition like Diabetes or Peripheral Neuropathy or an orthopedic issue like a knee or hip replacement. Across the board, researchers have proven that balance training techniques and stability exercises can improve steadiness, enhance function in activities of daily living and enable an individual to avoid falls as they age.

 Balance Training To Enhance Function For Later Years

By practicing balance exercises and following balance training principles in our younger years, we can maximize our balance abilities as we get older. One of the core balance training techniques is to learn how to center your balance and use your balance point during all standing and walking activities. If you become proficient at that particular equilibrium principle in your earlier years while you still have good sensory feedback from your feet and strong balance reactions at the ankles, then cognitively your brain and body connection for good balance will already be established. As an example, we recognize that when you learn to ride a bike as a kid, you develop the necessary balance and motor programs that stay with you as an adult. In the same fashion, when you develop good balance skills in your youth and middle age, those brain-body connections will be well established for when you hit your sixties and seventies, a time when balance skills are needed the most to avoid falls. Quite frankly, the time to begin balance exercises and balance training is NOW—  for whatever age you are. Fortunately, now you can practice specific balance training techniques and stability exercises in the convenience of your own home and in the midst of your busy schedule with the Exercise For Balance DVD, a professionally filmed balance program developed by an expert Physical Therapist.
