Get Strong To Live Long
Protecting Long-Term Health
According to a UK survey from the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy, 24% of people aged 65 and over do not do any strength training activities each week. This potentially puts them at risk of falls and serious health issues.
The poll also suggests that those approaching retirement are not doing enough to protect their long-term health.
Professor Karen Middleton, chief executive of the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy mentions “We must move past the idea that becoming weaker and frailer is inevitable as we get older. Research shows getting stronger brings a whole host of health benefits so it is incredibly important that people don’t overlook strengthening when being active.”
