[Cognitive mobility and physical movements, of critical importance].

Abstract

Ageing is often described as a crisis. It brings about a rupture with a previous balance. Physical activities can enable people to adapt to growing old as a dynamic process of self-investment. They are also methods of non-medication treatment for Alzheimer's and related diseases. Wandering, so frequent in patients suffering from cognitive disorders, would appear to signify the importance of movement as a principle of returning to the body and preverbal functionality.
