Elderly people are at a higher risk for broken bones and injuries than the rest of the population. While this is usually simply attributed to “old age” that doesn’t mean that nothing can be done to help the situation. The health professionals at Holmes Lake Chiropractic in Lincoln, NE know that there are lots of different types of therapy that can improve the quality of life for the aging.
More and more it is becoming clear that balance and stability training is vital for an independent and strong elderly population. Balance, like any physical skill, can be strengthened and developed with practice. For elderly individuals the fear of falling can be very real. The types of injuries that a young person might overcome in a few weeks with ease can take an elderly person months, and the rehabilitation may not be as complete. That’s why balance and stability training is so important as a precautionary measure.
When seniors have better balance and stability it lessens the likelihood that they will fall or have an accident in the first place. This not only helps prevent injury it also builds their confidence and independence. When elderly people feel strong and stable they are more likely to be active. Active older people are consistently happier, healthier, and more mentally sharp than older people who are inactive; so what begins with enhancing physical wellbeing ends up enhancing overall quality of life.
