Some weeks ago I posted a summary of literature regarding the effects of
exercise on postural stability in the elderly. This was requested because
of an assignment from the American College of Sports Medicine who will soon
publish a position paper on the issue.

That position paper has now been extended to include the effects of
exercise on flexibility in the elderly. I would be grateful to receive
information regarding references on this topic.

Thanks
