Standing Balance – Horizontal Head Turn

  • HOW:  Get set-up standing and balancing on both your feet together. While maintaining your balance, turn your head side-to-side. Stand an arms distance away from a stable surface for balance as needed.
  • 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 arc of motion.
  • 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.
