As we age, physical activity helps us attain our goals, maintain our functioning and promote comfort. In addition, routine exercise can help reduce arthritis pain, improve mood, sleep and blood sugar control, as well as affect memory.

This video includes both balance and strengthening exercises, which can prevent falls and hip fractures. This video is appropriate for those older adults who can stand with minimal support.

Sally Vernon says:

note that in the upper back exercise the arms should be at right angles to the body, and parallel with the floor.

Sally Vernon says:

note that on the hip abduction (lift the leg to the side) the leg should not pull forward or backward, but should remain parallel with the body.

Sally Vernon says:

Nice, helpful video – thank you for sharing. However, on the last stretch, watch the video as there is not verbal clue as to the time passed until the next video. I had my eyes closed, focussed on breathing (trying to straighten a painful left knee / leg) when the next video started (LOL)!
