    With all the tremendous snow storms occuring this winter, it is a good idea to practice  balance exercises to stay safe on slick surfaces. Please see During the last few weeks of winter, there have been numerous snow and ice storms all long the East Coast and Midwest. In Boston alone, the city had a record snow fall of eight feet in two weeks. Over one weekend, twenty-three states were under record cold temperatures. With all this snow, ice and freezing drizzle the roads, walkways, sidewalks and driveways can become treacherous to navigate. As a result, it is highly recommended that you practice certain steadiness techniques and balance exercises to help get around in a safe manner, free from slipping and falling.

 Balance Exercises For Walking On Snow & Ice

     following specific steadiness techniques and practicing  balance exercises is imperative to maintain an upright position while trying to ambulate on snow and ice. One of the basic principles of navigating on slick surfaces is to slow down and walk in a flat footed manner. When you walk flat footed, you use the entire surface of your foot for sensory feedback to the balance ceter in your brain, thereby maximizing your stability. In addition to this steadiness tip, you can also rehearse ahead of time certain equilibrium routines to help build appropriate balance skills. One such equilibrium routine involves standing on one foot for about twenty seconds. In this single stance position, you will develop strong balance reactions that can translate into heighthened stability when walking on slick surfaces. You can learn these recommended steadiness techniques and a series of balance exercises developed by an experienced Physical Therapist in the Exercise For Balance DVD.
