Retaining your flexibility as you age with gentle, low-impact exercises will help to keep you limber and able to meet daily demands, and also encourage strong bones and healthy joints

Retaining your flexibility as you age with gentle, low-impact exercises will help to keep you limber and able to meet daily demands, and also encourage strong bones and healthy joints. Those who engage in activities such as tai chi, yoga, and traditional stretching are benefiting in many ways. These activities help increase strength and flexibility without placing a strain on the joints. The findings of a study reported in the Journal of Rheumatology concludes that flexible people tend to have better bone-mineral density and are also less likely to develop arthritic joints compared with those who are less flexible. So, get up, get moving, and reach for the sky.
