      Older adults often dream of a fountian of youth where they have energy and vitality to be active, safe and steady, which can be facilitated by practicing senior balance exercises. Please see The Fountain Of Youth has many different definitions for people across the spectrum of aging. For most older individuals, however, that illusory fountain includes being healthy, strong, and stable both financially and with all movement activities. Being physically active may significantly improve musculoskeletal and overall health, and minimize or delay the effects of aging, according to a review of the latest research on senior athletes (ages 65 and up) appearing in the September issue of the Journal of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons. Many people in the aging population have assumed that aging causes an inevitable deterioration of the body and its ability to function, as well as increased rates of related injuries such as sprains, strains and fractures; diseases, such as obesity and diabetes; and osteoarthritis and other bone and joint conditions and imbalance with standing and walking events. However, recent research on senior, elite athletes suggests usage of comprehensive fitness, balance and nutrition routines helps minimize bone and joint health decline and maintain overall physical health. In a nutshel, daily fitness programs that include strength and stability exercises have been proven by medical researchers to enhance steadiness and maximize quality of an active life.

Senior Balance Exercises For Quality Of Life

       Medical researchers for geriatric patients have demonstreated that rehearsing senior balance exercises and  specific strengthening exercises for the trunk and lower legs can be beneficial to advance stability and maintain an active lifestyle. To be specific, steadiness exercises are the foundation of building good balance that allows older people to be stable and safe with all movement activities. One basic equilibrium that an older person can start with involves standing on one foot and centering the body weight in the center of the foot. This equilibrium rouitne has multiple benefits including developing strong and fast balance reactions at the feet and ankles. This single leg standing exercise also helps the indivdual to establish good stability, which is necessary during the stance phase of walking. These stability tips and certain senior balance exercises can be practiced on a daily basis by following along with the instruction of a knowledgeable Physical Therapist in the Exercise For Balance DVD.
