Staying Grounded: How Aquatic Training Can Reduce the Risk of Falls in Older Adults

Staying Grounded: How Aquatic Training Can Reduce the Risk of Falls in Older Adults cover

According to the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare, falls are the leading cause of injury-related hospitalisations among older Australians, especially those over the age of 65. The risk of falling is an important concern as this can lead to serious injuries such as fractures and head trauma as well as the loss of confidence.

While this risk rises with age, falls can be prevented through proactive measures such as strength training and balance exercises. Another type of exercise that has been gaining traction over the past few years is aquatic training.

Aquatic training harnesses the unique properties of water to provide a safe and effective exercise environment for older adults. At Healthstin, our accredited and well-experienced Exercise Experts conduct one-on-one training and group classes for participants using tailored programs that employ low-impact exercises designed to improve balance, strength, and flexibility.

The buoyancy of water reduces the risk of injury while providing gentle resistance to build muscle strength and endurance. Aquatic training can help address weaknesses in the lower body muscles and boost joint mobility by building muscle strength, improving the range of motion of your joints, and increasing your overall functional capacity.
