Work Ankles for Balance
Sunday, April 18, 2010
We have been getting an increase in calls about balance issues. What can I do to improve balance? What standing exercises can I do with risk of falling? Can I exercise using my walker?
While overall good fitness and good posture have lots to do with improving balance, there is one area of the body- often overlooked- that can help balance dramatically. Your ankles. Strengthen your ankles, increase their flexibility and mobility and you're on the right track.
