Low-Impact Exercise for Older Adults

As we age, we tend to experience an increasing number of physical challenges.

Slips and falls due to strength and balance issues can result in head injuries and broken hips. They are the leading cause of death among senior citizens. Declining muscle strength, less flexibility and increasing joint pain also impact most seniors. Maintaining good physical and mental health through low-impact exercise for older adults is extremely important.
