There isn’t a single thing more important than stability as we age. Without stability, our chances of falling and injuring ourselves increase significantly. Many people know they have a hard time with stability, but instead of addressing it and dealing with it, they avoid it. No one likes to do things they don’t enjoy, but the ramifications of avoiding it entirely can be dangerous.
It Only Takes One
Stability is a combination of flexibility and strength throughout the joints in our body. If you have one joint that doesn’t have good stability, the whole body is affected. If our stability is not good, one fall can have a significant impact on our mobility for the rest of our life. Falling a breaking an arm probably won’t affect us much in the long term, but breaking your hip during a fall can affect our gait pattern for years to come.
There’s no reason to deal with instability issues. If you are having trouble with balance, see one of our experts to begin an exercise program that will increase your stability and help you feel more secure about your daily activities. Why continue to take chances?
