Improve your balance by walking

  3 weeks ago (Mon, Jul 01, 2024 at 05:19 PM)

Balance is a one of the senses that we often take for granted—until we lose it. In our 50s and 60s, we may notice that our bodies feel less stable. Gradual changes linked to growing older—such as loss of muscle mass, lack of flexibility, slower reflexes, and worsening eyesight, and even certain medical conditions and medications —can affect our sense of balance.

Poor balance often leads to falls, which can cause head injuries and other disabling injuries. Hip fractures, in particular, can lead to serious health complications and threaten independence.
