A complete exercise program consists of aerobic, strength, flexibility and balance training. All four components are important for maintaining and promoting healthy aging, in addition to helping physically weak and frail people to improve their functional capacity. To prevent muscle pain in the lower leg, wear leg warmers or socks above the knee. In addition, you should exercise in comfortable clothing that does not restrict movement.
Collaboration with exercise programs and physical therapy and community programs sponsored or approved by the hospital increases accessibility to exercise and provides support to patients while reducing costs. This means changing our mentality from “age-based program design” to capability-based programming.
