Just as a reduction in resistance training can make us weaker and fewer miles on the treadmill can reduce our cardiovascular fitness levels, maintaining good balance as you age requires a continued effort.
Such an effort, according to physical therapist and certified geriatric clinical specialist Judith Daniel, PT, MS, GCS, can help reduce the incidence of falls in older adults.
“Too many people erroneously consider falls a normal consequence of growing old,” said Daniel, who’s also a member of the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) Fall Prevention Task Force. “It’s simply not true. There are evidence-based interventions that can help reduce their risk of falling and reduce falls-related injuries.”
