Activities To Improve Your Balance
“TheraFit is the best choice and best place to do your therapy.” “Back in 2009 I tore my rotator cuff and was looking not for just a good place to do therapy, but the best place to do therapy. The name TheraFit kept coming up, it was a little far for me to drive because it was in Hazel Green, but it was worth it. TheraFit is very professional, good atmosphere, friendly, and clean. They don’t pass you around from therapist to therapist, you stay with your therapist through your safe and speedy recovery. That’s the good news. The bad news is I tore my rotator cuff again in 2018 with my bicep. At least then I knew where to go to do therapy, but now TheraFit has opened a facility in Park City, TN. Easy access, plenty of parking, and still has that personal one on one touch to get me back to living life. TheraFit Physical Therapy is the best choice and best place to do your therapy.” - Ricky D.
You can benefit from better coordination and balance activities at any age. A stronger, more balanced body relieves aches and pains, while improving your ability to move faster... Here are some activities to improve your balance: 1. Standing glut set - Stand with feet hip width apart and knees slightly bent. Squeeze buttocks together gently, knees should turn out a little. Do not squeeze so hard that you tilt your pelvis. Hold for 10 seconds, 10 times. • Progression - Repeat this exercise standing on one leg. This exercise should be done near a counter or in a doorway for support as needed. Balance for as long as you can up to 1 minute 3 times on each leg. 2. Single leg stance - Stand on one leg with knee slightly bent. Make sure your hips remain even. This exercise should be done near a counter or in a doorway for support. Balance for up to 1 minute using assistance as needed, repeat 3 times on each leg. • Progression - Repeat single leg stance standing on a pillow or cushion to increase difficulty. 3. Visit a Physical Therapist: Physical therapy is very important to strengthening joints and learning the right exercises to improve balance. A professional can help you develop a program that plays into your strengths while increasing your ability to balance and reduce back injuries.
