Poor Balance, Weak Bones = Falling Danger

Posted Oct 28 2013 4:49pm

Boomer pair As Baby Boomers age , being able to maintain body balance and strong bones is key to a long and healthy life.  Regular exercise and maintaining acceptable bone mineral density (BMD) helps to keep your body strong and in balance.  A bone mineral density (BMD) test is the best way to determine your bone health.

Why not prove to yourself that you can maintain your balance by standing on one leg without holding onto anything?  To improve balance, when you walk, stand on one leg as you pick up the other one.  If you have a fear of falling, take smaller, shuffling steps.



With help from a guiding and qualified health care professional, you can stop "old-age" posture and a lack of a smooth transition toward a healthy and happy second life during those retirement years.
