Arthritis affects millions and millions of people around the country, and many of them are older adults and seniors who have weakened muscle and bone structure that decreases their strength, flexibility, and balance.  As a result, studies have showed that seniors are involved in more falls and fall-related injuries than any other group.  Moreover, those living with arthritis are two and a half times more likely to have fall related injuries according to the CDC. Falls do not only cause bumps and bruises,seniors are also at risk to fracture their bones due to their lower bone mass.  Furthermore, falls can often lead to head injuries, which can be especially dangerous for seniors.  Luckily, researches have found that exercise and physical therapy can help improve balance and strength for those with arthritis.  So if you or you know someone living with arthritis, consult the doctor about how to safely go about exercising to improve both your health and your balance to avoid future fall-related injuries.
