Senior Balance Exercises For Fallers

   Dramatic changes can occur in the lives of older adults who experience a fall, but the incidence of falling can be limited by practicing senior balance exercises. Please see   http://www.exerciseforbalance.com/buy-now Medical researchers have tracked that numerous senior citizens with chronic health conditions, live active and independent lifestyles. They exercise regularly, socialize with friends, and accomplish their daily activities independently and without any help. For one out of three aging individuals a year all of a sudden they experience a fall and a dramatic change occurs. Overnight a once independent person becomes frail. They begin a downward spiral of weakness, pain, immobility and imbalance, and ultimately lose their independence. Often, family caregivers are surprised by the fall and its consequences, exclaiming: “I didn’t see it coming!” Falls are typically caused by certain health conditions (e.g., normal physical changes of aging and illness), environmental hazards in the home that interfere with safety (e.g., clutter, low lighting, slippery floors, etc.) and/or situational or behavioral factors (i.e., hurrying, not paying attention, forgetting to use one’s cane, etc.). Thankfully, healthcare providers like doctors, physician assistants and physical therapists recognize that older adults who perform senior balance exercises have a reduced risk and incidence of falling and life changes due to falling.

Senior Balance Exercises For Fall Prevention

   Performing senior balance exercises every day can help older adults build their stability with movement activities and limit the possibility of a fall. To minimize the incidence of tripping and falling for those in the aging population, older folks can practice equilibrium routines like standing on one foot for twenty seconds, three times on each foot. This single leg standing routine helps to develop strong and fast balance reactions that builds stability with all movement activities. You can learn which senior balance exercises to practice and how to perform them by joining in with the coaching from a knowledgeable Physical Therapist in the Exercise For Balance DVD.
