One of the easiest and more simple exercises you can do to improve your balance is called the Single Leg Lateral (pictured above). This exercise will strengthen your ankles, lower legs and hips creating a more responsive system that can adjust and redirect misteps quickly. This movement will also greatly improve the communication network system between your brain, spine and muscular system. This is ,otherwise, known as neuromuscular efficiency. The benefit to increased neuromuscular effeciency means that when your brain detects your body becoming unstable and unbalanced, you will be able to adjust and adapt quickly. This improved system will result in less falls, which means more confidence and less worry for you and your loved ones.
