As we age, our bodies undergo changes that can affect our balance, strength, and coordination. These changes, combined with other factors such as medications and chronic health conditions, can increase the risk of falls. Falls are a leading cause of injury and death in older adults, and they can have a significant impact on an individual’s quality of life.
Exercise Physiologists are healthcare professionals who have specialised training in the science of human movement. They can help older adults maintain their physical health and function through exercise and physical activity. Exercise Physiologists can also design and implement falls prevention programs, which can help older adults reduce their risk of falling.
Falls prevention programs typically focus on improving balance, strength, and coordination.
Exercise Physiologists may use a variety of techniques and exercises to achieve these goals, including balance training, resistance training, and functional movement training. These programs can be tailored to the individual’s needs and abilities, and they can be progressed as the individual’s fitness level improves.
Overall, Exercise Physiologists can play a key role in helping older adults maintain their health and prevent falls. By implementing effective falls prevention programs and providing education and support, Exercise Physiologists can help older adults improve their overall physical capacity, allowing them to maintain their independence, quality of life & overall wellbeing.
