Having strong bones and muscles is probably the best way to prevent falls.
Public Health England has launched a report advising people to exercise regularly to strengthen their muscles and bones.
Intense bone and muscle strength helps to maintain good balance. Aerobic exercise ensures well-oxygenated blood reaches the brain and other vital organs. Healthy ageing is a direct benefit of the hard work you put in.
Do you follow a regular exercise regime?
If not, change your life today with a tiny habit of stretching or swinging your limbs, and surprise yourself with how much you can achieve.
Here are some strength and balance exercises recommended by the UK Chartered Society of Physiotherapy. You can practise at home, and it only takes a few minutes.
It is never too late or too soon to start regular aerobic and strengthening exercises.
