Balance is the first thing to deteriorate as we age, from our 30's on. We are then at more risk of stumbling, tripping or falling. Training your balance not only helps to prevent this from happening but it makes the whole body more efficient. Quicker reactions means you are less likely to wobble around putting adverse stress and strain on the body. Injury will also affect balance for the worse, and that’s right, then you are more likely to hurt yourself again. Do 5-10mins or balance work before your normal exercise routine. Our physios can give you some fantastic exercise ideas.
