Staying balanced appears to be a relatively simple concept, but doing so has many real life applications. Balance is often thought of as a static process – such as standing on one leg. In reality, however, it is a highly dynamic process, in which the body is working as one unit.
Balance is involved in all daily activities and is fundamental for all functional movements – from hanging curtains to walking to the mailbox. Body muscles that are weakened can cause injuries that directly affect our ability to keep our body balanced throughout the day.
To avoid injuries and have better posture and joint movement, balance training is vital. Balancing doesn’t work in isolation, therefore should be involved in all exercise movements.
