Overview

"Exercise Tips For The Elderly"
How to Build Your Strengths in the Golden Years in Order to Live Long and Stay Healthy

Exercise can help prevent bone loss, even in individuals already suffering from osteoporosis. A sedentary life style promotes the loss of bone mass and, for several years, doctors and scientists have been educating younger individuals that they can prevent bone loss through a calcium-rich diet and regular activity, including weight-bearing exercise.

Generally, fit individuals as old as 90 can decrease their tendency to fall by up to fifty percent through physical activity and balance training. Although bone fragility demonstrates one hurdle for elderly persons, the corollary element of that risk is that many fractures occur due to a fall. A lack of strength and balance makes it more probable that an elderly individual will fall and break a bone or injure a joint. It's possible for seniors to improve their muscle strength and balance to assist in preventing falls.

Incorporating balance training and functional training, developing core strength, and in general remaining active can help improve muscle strength, acquire response time and increase mobility, and provide a better sense of balance and coordination. These benefits are also a foundation for increased physical activity, which can decrease bone loss by maintaining remaining bone tissue, enhance general fitness, and decrease pain and chance of injury.
