4 Stretches Seniors Should Do Everyday

Older adults suffer from health conditions such as osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and other conditions that affect their flexibility and muscle strength. Stretching is important to:
Improve the range of movements in the joints of elderly adults
Increase blood circulation
Improve the posture
Reduce the risk of injury by releasing soreness and muscle tension
Improve balance, coordination, and muscle control.
Aging adults will also experience a sense of calmness because regular stretching exercises help relieve stress over time. In fact, stretching exercises could be a part of a general exercise routine or target specific joint groups in your parent’s body when he/she is recovering from injury or surgery.
