Can Dancing Decrease Senior Fall Risk?

According to a CDC survey, about 36 million seniors fall each year, resulting in more than 32, 000 deaths. Falls are common among older adults aged 65 or older — and can be very costly. However, falls are preventable and don’t have to be a part of the aging process.

Research has found that seniors who remained physically active had lesser chances of experiencing a fall than those who led a more sedentary lifestyle.

Dancing is one of the easiest and safest ways a senior can begin (or continue) to exercise. According to one study, it was found that elders who participated in a half hour of ballroom dancing had a 50 % improvement in balance and experienced fewer falls. These dances included the foxtrot, waltz, rumba, swing, samba and bolero.

If dancing isn’t your loved one’s thing, there are a variety of other exercise options they can do, such as yoga, tai-chi, swimming, and weight training.
