Earlier this week I wrote about how exercise can reduce the impact of age on health, fitness, and physical function. In many cases, exercise can even reverse the effects of age, literally turning back time.
Last week there was a good article on TIME.com about how exercise can help the elderly reduce the risk of disabling injury and shorten the time to recovery if an injury does occur. This suggests that exercise can promote independence by maintaining strength, endurance, balance, and mobility.
The research cited in the article is available here: http://annals.org/article.aspx?articleid=2556138
