Senior Balance Exercises Help Reduce The Rate Of Falls

   Medical researchers have found that practicing senior balance exercises on a daily basis can reduce the risk and incidence of falling. Unfortunately, statistics reveal approximately one in three individuals over the age of sixty years old fall every year. That number suggests that up to twenty million seniors experience a fall each year. Sadly, those falls often result in debilitating injuries. The most common injury that occurs with a fall is a hip fracture. Statistics indicate that approximately 300,000 older adults sustain a hip fracture secondary to a fall each year. Most of those hip fractures are seen in individuals over the age of sixty-five years old. The most critical statistic associated with this information is that of those 300,000 older adults who fall and sustain a hip fracture they are eight times more likely to have that fall sequence result in death. Very often in the elderly population, a fall and hip fracture is the first step that proceeds to an overall decline in health and resultant death. The good news, however, is that by practicing senior balance exercises an individual is able to improve their balance and reduce their risk and incidence of falling. Please see

Senior Balance Exercises Decrease The Risk Of Falling

The most effective method for older adults to avoid a fall is to perform senior balance exercises every day. Medical researchers have found that stability exercises have many benefits for those in aging generation. Equilibrium exercises help to develop strong and rapid balance reactions at the feet and ankles, which helped to keep older adults upright during challenging standing and walking activities. Stability exercises also enable on older individual to enhance steadiness while walking on various surfaces from hardwood floors to thick carpet to uneven grassy areas. Additionally, by practicing particular balance techniques in combination with stability exercises, the person is able to improve their trunk posture and increase their lower leg muscle strength, which subsequently enhances all balance abilities. The proper balance techniques and senior balance exercises can be found in the Exercise For Balance DVD, which was developed by a physical therapist, who specializes in balance and dizziness disorders.
