Exercise… the Key to Life
One in four people over age 70 suffer from gait disturbance. Gait disturbance is defined as unsteadiness during walking that is worse than the normal slowing of old age. Fear is often a precipitating or aggravating factor. A vicious cycle often arises in which fear of falling leads to avoidance of movement. This can result in reduced fitness, lower confidence in one’s own balance, increased fear, and increased danger of a fall. Depression and a markedly impaired quality of life can result.

It may start as a 5 minute walk or light exercise in a pool, but with time and consistency you’ll become stronger and more empowered.
