Senior Balance Exercises For Tennis

By Suzanne Stoke, Physical Therapist @ Exercise For Balance via

  Many older adults still enjoy a friendly game of tennis, which can be enhanced by practicing a few stability techniques and senior balance exercises before stepping on to the court. Please see Tennis is a wonderful game that can be played at any competitive level even in later years. Aging individuals late into their eighties and nineties can enjoy the companionship, socialization and exercise that tennis provides. As with all sports, the game of tennis can be enhanced by being preceded by developing adequate steadiness through performing equilibrium routines.   The game of tennis, whether you play doubles or singles tennis, involves extensive side to side and front to back movements.  Stability routines are important to make those side to side and front to back movements fluid. Steadiness exercises also help with the quick directional changes involved in tennis.



Senior Balance Exercises For Sports Games

  To maximize your enjoyment, camaraderie and competiveness of a game of tennis  It is best to establish a solid foundation of stability by rehearsing senior balance exercises before stepping on to the court.   Equilibrium routines include foundational techniques to aid basic standing and walking movements, necessary for our daily lives.  Balance training can also be advanced to apply basic stability techniques to high level activities such as sports, including tennis. T o train for the side to side and front to back movements found in the game of tennis, you can practice standing with your feet shoulder width a part and your body weight centered in the middle of your feet. From this position, you can slowly shift your body weight forwards and backwards, then side to side to learn how to control your shifting body weight. Once this weight shifting has been mastered, you can progress to controlling your balance as you quickly step forwards and backwards or side to side. You can learn how to develop your balance abilities by following along with the senior balance exercises presented by a qualified Physical Therapist in the Exercise For Balance DVD.
