Part of the SpringerBriefs in Well-Being and Quality of Life Research book series (BRIEFSWELLBEING)


Narrowing down all that was previously presented to a sentence, the focus of this short book was to exploit the topic of active ageing and physical activity in a multidisciplinary perspective. This Springer Brief presented itself as a compendium that scientifically described the major pathologies and psychomotor difficulties plaguing the ageing body, presenting several exercises adequately represented with real pictures, which allowed to illustrate, in detail, the methodologies presented in the contemporary literature on the topic. This final chapter presents a short summary of the book, discussing its practical implications and providing some final recommendations for the active senior citizen.
