Tip of the Day: “Balance is very important to maintain as we age. One must be stable before one is mobile!” – Holly G., PT, DPT, from Wyoming.
Balance requires a combination of good muscle strength, flexibility, vision, and vestibular (inner ear) function.
To improve your balance try the following:
- strength training
- coordination/functional exercises
- vision/vestibular evaluation
