Exercising May Lower Chances of Severe Mobility Issues in Senior People
A team of researchers from American Geriatrics Society suggests that exercising may significantly lower the chances of severe mobility in senior adults. They believe that seniors who exercise have fewer difficulties with walking or climbing stairs.
For their research, the scientists enrolled 1,635 adults aged between 70 and 89. All of them had higher than average risk for becoming physically disabled over some period. When the research started, the participants could walk nearly one-quarter of a mile without help. After that, they all were divided into two groups, first of which was encourages to a daily exercising, and the other group attended weekly workshops.
In the end of the study, the researchers registered that people in the exercising group had a lower level of severe mobility problems than their counterparts from the other group.
