That people don't realise Tai chi and Qigong of exercise to prevent falls in any age people.
Falls prevention with practice TAI CHI
Currently, known effective interventions include exercise; single non-exercise interventions targeting people with specific risk factors; and multi-factorial interventions. Below are some of the strategies for which there is strong evidence of their effectiveness.
EXERCISE IN OLDER PEOPLE LIVING INDEPENDENTLY IN THE COMMUNITY.
Exercise for community-dwelling older people is the most studied and effective single falls prevention intervention. The 2019 Cochrane review of exercise for falls prevention included 108 trials and confirmed that exercise can prevent falls in the community, reducing both the rate of falls (number of falls experienced per person) and the number of people who fall at least once per year (proportion of people who fall). 9 This review categorised exercise programs as primarily involving different types of exercise according to criteria established by the European Union-funded ProFaNE group.10 As not all exercise modalities were equally effective in preventing falls, the impact of different types of exercise was explored independently.
Conclusions from this review were that effective forms of exercise to prevent falls in older people are:
(i) exercise that primarily targets functional abilities or balance,
(ii) exercise with multiple components (most commonly function/balance and strength),
(iii) Tai Chi. Conversely, there is no evidence that strength training alone, walking alone, or dance will prevent falls.

Tai chi — also called tai chi chuan — is a Chinese martial art that combines a series of graceful, flowing movements to create a sort of moving meditation. The exercise is performed slowly and gently with a high degree of focus and a special attention paid to breathing deeply. Since practitioners go at their own pace, tai chi is accessible for a wide variety of people — regardless of age or fitness level.
