Single Leg Balance

Single Leg Balance

This exercise is designed to improve your ability to balance on one leg, which is important with walking and to limit the risk of falling and experiencing a secondary injury. - Position yourself standing with a chair or sturdy object in front of you such as a bathroom or kitchen counter - Pick up one foot and balance on the leg that is in contact with the ground. Focus on standing upright and not letting yourself lean side-to-side. It is ok to let your hip and knee bend a little bit. - Grab the chair or sturdy object if you lose your balance
