At Nymbl, we 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 learn by doing new things and when it comes to walking, you most likely walk the same routes, such as the sidewalk path around your neighborhood.
A consistent and effective way to improve your balance is with daily balance training. This is where Nymbl can help. Nymbl is a scientifically-proven¹ approach to fall prevention that makes balance training both fun and effective by combining simple body movements with brain games to challenge your body and mind at the same time. Nymbl is fully covered by your health plan and is available at no additional cost to you.
