Balance training to improve balance and postural control to reduce falls and improve joint stability
Balance is an essential element of fitness and overall health. Having good balance allows for our joints to have stability, to prevent falls and other injuries, and to perform movement and exercise most efficiently. At Elite Sports Physical Therapy, we can do a full evaluation of your balance abilities and customize a balance training program which can help improve coordination, improve core strength, and improve your overall balance.
In older patients, balance training can reduce the risk for falls and help you maintain your functional independence. Though balance declines as we age, we can minimize the loss and improve your balance abilities to reduce the risk for future fall and improve overall safety.
Balance training is additionally important to improve athletic performance. Through balance training, joint stabilization improves which makes you move and perform more powerful and efficient. When it comes to practice and competition, having better dynamic stability, core strength, and postural control will allow you to transfer and change your body movements with greater speed and precision.
