Lower Body Strengthening
Lower body strengthening can be a critical contributor to balance disturbances. Testing identifies weaknesses so exercise can significantly improve lower body strength.
Endurance and Gait
Older adults often walk slower, with shorter steps that vary in length, which can increase the risk of falls. Safe exercise helps strengthen muscles and build endurance for walking.
