Active Seniors Recover More Easily from Injury.

357

Seniors who regularly exercise appear less likely to suffer a disability, and if they do, they tend to recover quicker. A study that included 1,600 older adults showed that active seniors were 13% less likely to develop a physical disability, and exercisers were one-third more likely to recover from impairment than those who lived a sedentary lifestyle. The findings suggest that it’s never too late to reap the benefits of exercise.
