Single Leg Balance With Vertical Head Turns

  • HOW: Get set-up standing and balancing on one foot. While maintaining your balance, move your head by looking up and down as far as directed or that you feel comfortable with.
  • FEEL: You should feel like your balance is being challenged. If you’re having difficulty maintaining your balance, start out with slowing down your head turns or decreasing the total amount of head movement.
  • COMPENSATION: Try not to losing your posture and excessively leaning forward/backward or side to side. If you lose your balance it is ok, take a step and get back to starting position. Do not allow yourself to fall or take the risk of injuring yourself.
