Improving Balance

Because we are a balance disorder blog, we receive inquiries from non-vestibular patients who would like to improve their balance.

– Start off by standing with both feet firmly on the ground and close your eyes. Do this for 30 seconds. Make sure there is a study means of support nearby. You will teach your body how to listen to your vestibular system and keep balance. 

– To make the exercise more difficult, move your feet closer and then close your eyes. Do this for 30 seconds.pilates06

– Next balance on one leg for 30 seconds (eyes open then eyes closed).

– Strong abs and core will improve posture and thus improve balance. Pilates is great for core strengthening.

 

– Yoga is great for balance. Have you seen some advanced yoga moves?
