Good Advice From Balance Exercise Experts

By Suzanne Stoke, Physical Therapist @ Exercise For Balance via www.exerciseforbalance.comBighorn Sheep Facts - NatureMapping

Every day balance exercises and balance techniques are essential for  older adults, athletes and folks with physical conditions or  disabilities. As a Physical Therapist, I love to learn different  stability routines and balance strategies from those in the world  around us. I enjoy watching people and animals show off their balance  skills in the midst of every day living. This week I had the great  blessing of savoring time in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado. My  favorite experience was hiking by pristine streams, through endless groves of Aspen trees, trying to inhale as much oxygen as possible with  every step. As I ventured out above tree line, I stumbled upon an  encounter with a couple of magnificent Big Horn Sheep. The Big Horn Sheep are well known for their amazing resilience in a tough  environment, their magnificent curved horns ( which can grow to 50  inches in length) and their exceptional agility, balance and climbing  abilities on rough terrain. These outstanding animals were designated  the official state animal of Colorado in 1961. The surefootedness of  the Big Horn Sheep make them excellent residents of the rocky terrain  in the mountains.  Please see

 Practice Balance Exercise Programs The Way The Experts Do

    For us mere mortals, balance exercise routines and balance strategies should be a part of our daily fitness routine. We can learn key points from the experts around us. One magnificent trait of the Big Horn Sheep is that they have unique hooves that maximize their balance abilities. Their hooves  are not hard like a horse or cow. Their hooves have a rubber-like quality which helps them to grip and improves their mobility on steep, rocky terrain. Consequently, their feet provide an enormous amount of stability for their every movement. Likewise, we depend largely on our feet for good balance. By focusing on the sense of touch between our feet and the surface we are standing on, we are able to enhance our steadiness and diminish the risk of falling. In fact, concentrating on the sensory input from our feet is one of the primary balance strategies that I teach in the Physical Therapy clinic to my patients who struggle with dizziness and balance problems. To help you practice similar balance techniques and balance exercises, please see the Exercise For Balance DVD that you can use in the comfort of your own home.
