Senior Balance Exercises Integrated With Functional Activities

By Suzanne Stoke, Physical Therapist @ Exercise For Balance via

    Senior balance exercises have been proven to be beneficial for older adults who need to improve balance and leg strength in order to perform functional activities more safely at home and outside of the home. On the flip side researchers have investigated the effects of functional exercises and their positive influence on balance for older adults. de Bruin E.D. and Murer K. in their study, Effect of additional functional exercises on balance in elderly people, evaluated functional exercises and balance abilities. Their objective was to evaluate the additional effect of functional exercises on balance and lower extremity function among elderly people partaking in strength training. Their results showed that improvements for the balance test depended on the type of strength training the subjects performed. The participants who worked out twice a week on strength exercises and functional exercises demonstrated greater improvement in their balance. This study suggests that when balance training and strength training are combined together, the individual can improve in both steadiness and function. Please see
