Discussing Balance

Do You Know That You Have More Than 5 Senses?

Proprioception is your ability to sense the position of all your joints. With a lessened sense of proprioception, a person has to look directly at the limb they are moving in order to perceive its desired movement; something they used to do without even thinking about it. The good news is, that like any other activity, proprioception can be re-learned with physical therapy. There is a lot that can be done to improve your balance. The key is physical therapy. With hands on therapy to improve your joint mobility and simple strengthening and balance exercises taught to you, you can improve your balance, walking and feel like your normal self. The Orlando Sports Medicine is ideal to improve your balance, increase your walking, improve your

movement and get you back to living life at your maximum potential. Ask your doctor today about coming to Orlando Sports Medicine and becoming better balanced.
