Is Latin still just right?
Canadian scientists have recently found that the elderly to dance tango dance can help reduce the deterioration of the brain, and jumping this difficult dance can improve the balance of the elderly.
At present, aging is very serious in many countries around the world, and Canada is one of them.
According to statistics, elderly people with obesity in Canada have had an average of one fall experience per year, while 40% of the elderly are admitted to hospital because of injuries related to falls.
Statistics also show that 71% of Canadians over the age of 65 live alone, and many people do not have contact with the outside world for seven hours a day. This, combined with the normal aging of humans, has led to a rapid decline in their cognitive abilities.
Therefore, Patricia McKinley, a professor of occupational disease treatment at McGill University School of Medicine in Canada, launched a team to conduct research.
He said that they found that a tango walk can better improve the ability of older people to do complex tasks and move in limited space.
In the study, the researchers recruited 30 elderly people, aged 62 to 90.
These elderly people are very healthy, but they have experienced a fall last year and fear of falling.
The 30 old people were divided into areas, each of which was engaged in tango learning, and the other group took a walk.
The two groups collectively exercise twice a week at the Lethbridge Retreat in Lake Constance for a total of 10 weeks.
The researchers found that the group that danced tango and the grouping of walking had a great improvement in balance ability, posture, motor coordination and cognitive ability. They were better at walking, one-leg bending or the ability to turn in a limited space.Group.
McKinley said that jumping tango is indeed an ideal entertainment for the elderly. It meets the three basic requirements of exercise: first it is entertainment, then it is a group activity, and finally its goal is very practical., the dancers can realize that their family and friends can also find out.
