Your care team and Nymbl care about what’s important to you. Because good balance and health go hand in hand, we’re discussing walking and balance improvement.
There are many physical activities you may do on a daily basis, like walking, that might make you wonder, “Can this help improve my balance?” While walking has many advantages, such as heart, lung and emotional health, it doesn’t directly impact your balance skills or improve balance on its own. This is because you likely walk predictable paths on familiar surfaces, like the same sidewalk route around your neighborhood. This predictability lacks variety of movement and brain challenge, which are essential for balance improvement.
