Walking Balance Exercises

Walking balance exercises

  1. Walk and turn your head to one side as you walk. With every other step, turn your head to the other side. Try to walk about 50 feet.
  2. Then walk about 50 feet while moving your head up and down.

These exercises are harder than normal walking. So think about having someone with you when you start them. At first, you may not be able to walk in a straight line—you may weave a lot. Weaving less while doing these exercises is a sign of progress.

Do these exercises two times each day. Over time, work up to walking 100 feet for each exercise.
