A lifetime of wear and tear, the effects of a sedentary lifestyle(too much sitting) and other poor lifestyle choices catches up when we reach midlife and accumulate in those later years with chronic health and medical problems, causing dis-function and pain, and eventually loss of independence or early death. Pretty bleak outlook, right?
Staying healthy and free of injury is essential for older adults who desire to stay independent for as long as possible. It takes good strength, balance and mobility to protect our independence from falls and related injuries. One-third of people 65 and older falls annually, and 1 out of 5 falls causes a serious injury such as head trauma, hip or other bone fracture. More than two-thirds of deaths from falls were at home and 40% of older adults receiving chronic or long-term care are due to fall injuries.
Even if you are in your peak of physical fitness accidents can happen and sudden illness can hit. If you are stuck by an unexpected medical hardship that isn’t covered by your insurance this can cause a great deal of stress and anxiety.
Can you believe that tape worms were once believed to be a healthy and safe weight loss method? I dont know about you but I am glad the health and fitness industry is constantly advancing. Who knows what we will learn in the next few years. Better Body, Better Life!
