What is Balance Training?

balance training
Balance Training is a form of physical therapy that assesses the cause of balance issues within a patient and applies a custom program centered on balance retraining, conditioning, and education. The purpose of this program is to regain lost balance and reduce the risk of falling for the patient.

During treatment, the patient will strengthen key muscles, improve their reactions to instability, integrate vision-sensation-vestibular information, and practice challenging environmental obstacles to establish confidence where there was once anxiety.

Balance is simply maintaining your center of gravity. This is done with the help of your central nervous system, inner ear and joints, your senses and muscles.

Your balance can be disrupted in several different ways:

  • Vestibular and Inner Ear Disorders
  • Orthopedic Injury
  • Lack of Strength and Flexibility
  • Neurological Problems
  • Medications

While you may not be able to eliminate certain causes of balance issues, balance training can help build up your confidence and reaction time in order to help prevent falls and injuries.
