Senior Balance Exercises For Increased Stability

By Suzanne Stoke, Physical Therapist @ Exercise For Balance via www.exerciseforbalance.com

  Being steady on ones feet is a critical need for older individuals and can be facilitated by practicing  senior balance exercises  on a consistent basis. Please see more information at http://www.exerciseforbalance.com/buy-now   In physical therapy, we use a technique called rhythmic stabilization to enhance stability. Rhythmic stabilization involves adding gentle external input in the form of pushes (perturbations) by the therapist to the patient’s trunk, shoulders or hips. Rhythmic stabilization techniques can be applied with the person in a sitting or standing position. During rhythmic stabilization exercises, the person’s core muscles contract to develop necessary core strength. Having strong core muscles is essential for good balance. Rhythmic stabilization exercises also help to develop overall stability that will translate into better steadiness with all movement patterns. As a medical professional, we also know that patient’s can build their balance skills by performing certain senior balance exercises at home.

Senior Balance Exercises At Home

   By practicing senior balance exercises on a regular basis, you can establish necessary steadiness that will help you minimize the possibility of falling and help you make basic activities of daily living safer and easier to complete. As an example, if you work on improving your stability through performing equilibrium routines then you will make household chores like vacumming and washing windows safer. You can use stabilization exercises like standing with your feet together and shifting your body weight forwards and backwards or side to side to build up your needed balance. Another key component of performing stability routines is to do the exercises on a regular basis not on a sporadic basis. To help you rehearse the senior balance exercises at home on a daily schedule, there is now a professionally filmed exercise for balance.
