The fear of falling stops many older adults from
stepping out of their comfort zone and enjoying life!

Get to the bottom of your balance problems

By first understanding what balance is, you can take the appropriate steps to improve your balance. Balance is largely an automatic reflex. And as you move into your 50s and 60s, you may notice yourself becoming less stable.

Loss of muscle mass, slower reflexes, and worsening eyesight can affect your sense of balance. Certain health problems — such as inner ear disorders, hearing loss, heart rhythm disturbances, and neuropathy (nerve damage that causes weakness, numbness, and pain) — may upset balance, too.

And shaky balance can lead to a downward spiral.

Harvard balance experts present a 53-page report for anyone who has experienced the fear of falling and craves more stability.

Practical ideas based on current research and evidence to help you become studier on your feet — no matter what your age!

The body’s balance systems. Whether you’re moving or standing still, balance requires interplay among several systems: the central nervous system (brain and spinal cord), the vestibular system (brain and inner ear), the visual system (brain and eyes), and a vast web of position-sensing nerves called proprioceptors in peripheral areas of the body, such as the legs. Understanding how these systems work together can help keep you upright and safe!
Investigating balance problems. If you frequently feel unsteady on your feet or suffer from dizziness or vertigo (the sensation of the room spinning), you need to read this section. Too often balance problems and risks of falling aren’t addressed until a condition becomes serious. Read all about how your doctor will begin the process of diagnosing your balance problems.
Activities that enhance balance. The workouts in this report are designed to improve your balance skills, both while you hold steady (static balance) and while you’re in motion (dynamic balance). You’ll get simple balance exercises you can sprinkle throughout your day. In addition, experts at the American College of Sports Medicine suggest ways you can pose balance challenges for yourself.
Balance workouts and your overall fitness plan. Better balance is important. But to maintain your overall health, you need to do more than just balance exercises. You need to engage in physical activity on a regular basis. Read all about the current guidelines and the benefits of daily balance-boosting activities.
Workouts for every level. You’ll find a list of equipment that you’ll need for your workouts, explanations of terms used in the workouts, and some advice on structuring your program. Importantly, you will also find a list of workouts for everyone — no matter your level of fitness.
Plus, you get many different strategies you can try to see what works for you!
