Strive To Have Better Balance As You Age! Prevent Injuries By Improving Your Balance...

(continued from outside) In addition, better balance allows your ankle, knee and hip joints to function better, without as much strain that can cause abnormal wear and tear. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention reports, “In 2000, falls among older adults cost the U.S. healthcare system over $19 billion dollars or $30 billion dollars in 2010. With the population aging, both the number of falls and the costs to treat fall injuries are likely to increase.” Additionally, by increasing muscle stability and coordination, your spine will have greater support and guidance, thereby reducing strain. In turn, your back is able to function appropriately without irritation and inflammation. Protect yourself from injuries by improving your balance and strength. It doesn’t matter how old you are, everyone can benefit from stronger balance reflexes, just ask top athletes. Isn’t it time you handled your balance, before it becomes a bigger problem?
