Stability For Seniors
Stability For Seniors
Feeling unsteadiness on your feet? Learn how to regain your balance & stability and live your life feeling strong & secure.
To some, the fear of falling may seem trivial. Yet to the 65+ age group, this can be a stressful thing. Studies show that people who fall during their senior years are much more prone to injury and sometimes even death. Many older people wonder if it’s possible to improve their balance and also get stronger so that they’ll be more stable. Should they accidentally trip or slip, their bodies would be more resilient and they will be able to handle the impact.
This is a sensitive topic and definitely warrants much attention. The hard truth is that people do not become physically unstable or unbalanced as they age. Of course, there is no denying that a certain degree of strength and mobility is lost. However, the main reason people become frail and weak is due to a lack of exercise. This may seem unpalatable because it highlights one’s neglects and failings. The truth is bitter. You may have noticed that some people in your neighborhood, who are in their 60s, have trouble walking and getting around.
What is the underlying reason here? Why are these people healthy and well-coordinated while you or others you may know are sickly, unfit or unable to move without assistance? The answer is – the life choices that were made.
Only with regular exercise and a healthy diet can you have a body that is fit and has the ability to almost reverse aging. Dan Inosanto, is 79 years old and he is still fit and active. He used to train Bruce Lee and many other martial artists. The martial arts are one of the best forms of exercise. Why?
Because you need balance, flexibility, strength and stamina to excel at it. All the punching, kicking and movements will help the body to retain its natural vigor and vitality. If you have neglected your health for years and life seems to be a chore now because you can’t get around without assistance, do not feel dejected. You can remedy the situation. You can restore the strength, balance and stamina that you have lost. It is never too late to become what you might have been. Your body will help you, if you help it.
