Progress Balance Training With Eye Exercises

By Suzanne Stoke, Physical Therapist @ Exercise For Balance via

Balance training is an excellent adjunct to your daily health routines like good nutrition, adequate water intake, brushing and flossing your teeth and participating in some form of exercise.  Taking care of one’s self is more and more important as we age.  Balance training can begin on a basic level like learning stabilization techniques.  Balance exercises can advance by various means including adding more difficult  eye exercises.   Please see

Eye Exercises Make Balance Training More Challenging

Since the three components of balance training include vision, sensory feedback from the feet and ankles, and input from the inner ear vestibular system, you can easily make your balance routines more difficult by changing any one of these dynamics. For balancing, our brain uses visual input as the primary sense for maintaining our equilibrium.  Changing visual input, therefore, can advance stability exercises, to maximize your balance abilities.  One example of advancing eye exercises is to combine standing with one foot in front of the other while you move your eyes side to side.  Next, you can make your balance training more difficult by standing on one foot while reading a magazine article.  These are just some simple suggestions of ways you can progress your balance routines and advanced your balance abilities. You can take your advanced balance skills outdoors by walking on trails and enjoying the beauty around you.
