If your balance needs work, a little training can help you keep your feet on the ground. Balance training exercises can reduce your risk of falling and injury by strengthening your legs and hips. Standing exercises are one way to train your balance. In this video, VA physical therapist Dr. Emma Shapiro shares a simple 5-part exercise routine to better balance.
This video shows you side kicks, calf raises, squats, and single-leg balance exercises. Before you get started, find a stable place to stand.
When you start these exercises, be careful not to push yourself too hard. Only you know what your limits are. If you can, push yourself to do all 5 exercises as a circuit with no rest between or without a balance point.
