Senior Mobility – Important Reminders from Vive Health

Experiencing problems with your own senior mobility? You’re not alone. The United States Census Bureau reports that of the almost 16 million seniors who have a disability, a whopping two thirds of them report theirs is specifically linked to issues with mobility – either walking or climbing. Senior mobility is a big issue.

As you age, difficulties with mobility may present themselves in a variety of ways including:

  • Fatigue and lack of endurance when walking
  • Frequent falls
  • Trouble standing for more than 10 minutes at a time
  • Pain or discomfort when walking or climbing stairs
  • Problems with balance and coordination
