Senior Balance Exercises For Platform Training

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

  Vibration platform training can help older adults, but starting with  senior balance exercises  is recommended. Please see http://www.exerciseforbalance.com/buy-now Some individuals in the elderly population are too weak and frail to participate in a robust fitness or walking program. Exercise is one of the few strategies that may both reduce fall risk and increase bone strength. Unfortunately, many of the people who had most risk of falls and fractures may be unwilling or unable to exercise. Externally applied loading as in standing on a vibration platform is a potential alternative. A substantial proportion of older people sustain falls, which in combination with low bone strength contribute to fractures and associated morbidity, reduced quality of life and increased mortality. Previous fallers are more likely to fall again, so improving fall risk in previous fallers is particularly important. For those senior citizens who are too weak to join in on more high level exercises, standing on a vibration platform can produce many beneficial outcomes including increased muscle mass, increased bone density, increased neuromuscular firing. For optimal safety while standing on a platform, aging individuals are coached to start senior balance exercises first to develop adequate balance.

Senior Balance Exercises For Steady Standing

    Practicing senior balance exercises before getting up on a vibration platform will enhance your workout and safety. Equilibrium routines like standing on one foot will advance your balance abilities in preparation for whole body vibration exercises on the platform. Furthermore, rehearsing balance exercises like standing on one foot and moving the other foot forwards and backwards will help you prepare for stepping up on the platform safely. Additionally, you can apply specific balance strategies while standing on the platform, which will develop even strong balance skills. YOu can learn the appropriate senior balance exercises and balance techniques needed for standing on the vibration platform by following the instruction of a knowledgeable Physical Therapist in the Exercise For Balance DVD.
