There’s an underlying myth that falls are an inevitable part of getting old. The surprising truth is our risk of a fall decreases with one thing – exercise.

Here are six simple exercises used by physiotherapists to keep muscles strong and keep us mobile and independent as we age. Try out heel raises, toe raises, heel toe stand, one leg stand, heel toe walking, and sit to stand exercises.

Excellent exercises. Thanks for these reminders.

Please make corrections to this video as it puts people at risk for falls.  No person with balance issues should attempt toe raises holding onto a chair- that's a setup for a fall backwards with a chair landing on top of the person.  All of these exercises shoulde be performed holding a stable surface, i.e. a counter/kitchen sink.  Any person who works with elderly with balance issues knows that they lean backwards to get their toes to raise up because they usually have tight heel cords.  In addition, sit to stand to sit chair squats would be better performed with a chair that has armrests and the chair may be placed in front of a table or counter, preventing a fall forward.  I am a  homecare PT – for 26 years.  Just trying to keep people safe out there with good tips.
