Senior citizens have an increased risk of falling. They can get seriously hurt if they do. They can break bones since they’re more brittle and they take much longer to heal. These are exercises which can help increase their balance. This is useful information. It can save someone from serious injury or even death. If you are caring for a senior citizen you should show them these exercises and help them to do them often.
- Better balance can be achieved by implementing exercise techniques regularly.
- Older individuals that tend to stoop over, are actually displacing their center of gravity, which makes them prone to falling.
- Simple things like practicing good posture, marching, slowly, in place and lifting the legs up and down and to the side can help restore a sense of balance.
