Poor balance affects people of all ages, and can lead to falls that often result in injuries. Have you ever exercised to improve your balance?
Balance exercises are sometimes referred to as “core training” because “core” refers to the muscles that surround your trunk. The lower-body strength exercises which include plantar flexion, hip flexion, hip extension, knee flexion, and side leg raise are also balance exercises.
Balance exercises can help you stay independent by helping you avoid a disability that may result from falling. Regularly scheduled strength exercises will improve your balance at the same time. Do your strength exercises, and incorporate the balance techniques as you progress. Over time you will notice that these exercises will help you feel more steady and confident when you move and engage in daily activities.
