   You enhance stability with movement activities and reduce the risk of falling by following certain stability strategies and by practicing specific senior balance exercises. Please see Since the balance center in the brain uses three primary sensory input from the eyes, inner ear and sense of touch throughout the body, you can elevate your balance abilities by being mindful of the sensory input from your feet. In fact, being aware of the surface you are walking on  and the sensory input from your feet is one of the key components of equilibrium routines.    One of the essential ingredient for enhanced steadiness is being aware of walking on different surfaces such as
  • Tile
  • Hardwood floors
  • Different size rocks
  •  Carpet
  • Thick grass
  • Uneven hiking trails
  • Slippery ice or snow
  Medical research indicates that falling is very common among older adults. Statistics reveal that one in three seniors fall every year. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that millions of adults 65 and older suffer from falls each year.  Healthcare workers like doctors, nurses and physical therapists suggest that aging adults partake in daily senior balance exercises to enhance stability and minimize the potential of a fall.
