What Are Some Examples of Balance Therapy Exercises?

Some examples of balance therapy exercises include weight shifts, single leg balance, bicep curls with a dumbbell, Tai Chi, or simply standing on a cushion. Each of these tasks requires several different steps in order to be executed properly to achieve the desired therapeutic effect.

In order to properly execute weight shifts, it's imperative to stand with one's feet hip width apart, followed by shifting one's weight to one side with the opposite leg off the floor and holding for 30 seconds. If someone prefers a simpler exercise, just grabbing a cushion and standing on it, while alternating feet together or apart, can easily improve both balance and posture.
