Balance Training Better Than Tai Chi at Improving Mobility in Older Adults

. Emphasis was on awareness of one’s body alignment, relaxation and distribution of weight, and 12 sequences from the tai chi Yang Short Form were practiced.

At the end of the 10 weeks, improvements in unipedal stance were roughly the same between the two groups. But compared to tai chi, CBST had greater improvements in the timed up and go measure (9.4 percent faster than the tai chi group); and in the two step measurements, (9.8 percent higher in the CBST group for the maximal step length test, and 5.4 percent higher in the rapid step test).

“This research is very promising in our efforts toward reducing falls among older adults,” Nnodim says. “We would like future research to include a comparison of fall rates in response to these two programs so we can develop an even better sense of what works best in the prevention of falls.”
