Senior Balance Exercises And Wonderful Walking

By Suzanne Stoke, Physical Therapist @ Exercise For Balance via

   Walking is touted as one of the best exercises around, especially for older individuals when coupled with senior balance exercises. Please see To be specific, A recent report by the Ramblers and Macmillian Cancer Support entitled Walking Works details the health benefits of the humble walk. The report found that regular walking to fulfil the 150 minutes of moderate physical exercise every week recommended by the United Kingdom’s chief medical officer could save 37,000 lives each year. Additionally, walking could also lead to nearly 300,000 fewer cases of type 2 diabetes. In some cases especially for those in the aging population, walking can be more effective than running. Scientists at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory in California, found that brisk walking reduces the risk of heart disease more effectively than running. They observed participants aged between 18 and 80 over a six-year period and found that walking reduced the risk of heart disease by 9.3%, while running reduced it by 4.5%. And there’s even more good news: 30 minutes of brisk walking over five days could help you sleep easy, according to research by Oregon State University. A study by the university showed that walking helped participants sleep better and feel more alert during the day. The benefits walking are enhanced by starting with a series of senior balance exercises to establish adequate steadiness during all walking activities.
