Simple Ways to Improve Balance and Proprioception
Posted by Dr. Ben Kim on Apr 18, 2016
Meant for those with limited mobility or only a small space to work within, these simple exercises are highly effective in strengthening the sensory receptors, sensory fibers, and motor pathways needed to have good balance and proprioception.
Working on our balance and proprioception is essential for decreasing risk of falls. If you have any elderly friends or family members who aren't working on their balance and proprioception, please consider trying these activities with them.
For the drills that call for a racquet or paddle, if you don't have easy access to them, you can use outstretched palms, light plates, or even light pans.
You can use books or anything around the house as hurdles. The ones we use can be found here: SKLZ Footwork and Agility Training Hurdles
