Taking a spill can be especially dangerous for seniors and older adults. More than one-third of people 65 and older fall every year, leading to serious injuries and even death. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, one out of five hip fracture patients dies within a year of their injury. Balance exercises, along with strength training, can help reduce the risk of falls. Try this easy exercise for better balance: standing on one foot. Here’s how to do it: First, place your hand on the back of a sturdy chair for balance. Stand on one foot and hold for as long as you can, up to 10 seconds. Do this move 10 to 15 times, then switch legs and repeat. Aim for a total of two sets of 10 to 15 exercises on each leg.
