If you are looking to improve your balance and coordination, then balance boards are the way to go. At Whites Physical Therapy we help athletes, fitness enthusiasts, the elderly and those who suffer from conditions that affect balance and coordination. Balance boards come in various shapes and forms. They all share a common feature, though, they are circular and have a domed bottom. Physical therapists at Whites Physical Therapy will help you with exercises involving balance boards. The board makes you react to movement as it can’t be stationary. The balancing exercises offer numerous physical benefits.
At Whites Physical Therapy, we will help your body develop a sense of body position and movement. This is because therapy activities that require balance boards make use of the receptor nerves throughout the body. These nerve endings are in muscles, joints, and ligaments. After a couple of sessions involving the balance board, you’ll start experiencing the benefits. This means that by the end of a successful treatment process you will be able to make muscles contract or relax appropriately. Your brain will also be able to correctly position your body for maximum comfort.
Balance boards are also important in injury recovery. During the rehab process, introducing a balance board to an athlete’s regimen will make it easier to reposition injuries, e.g., sprains. Balance boards will also help in the prevention efforts of future injuries and pains.
Our physical therapists will also take you through Balance Board Training. This will allow you to increase your body strength and work on your core muscles. One of our physical therapist in Wilmington, MA also help you work on your posture and maintain a good spine position. At Whites Physical therapy we also use balance boards to help children who struggle with cognitive skills.
An effective treatment program will be provided by your physical therapist. This will help you keep your recovery efforts within limits your body can handle. In case of any questions don’t shy away from consulting any of our therapists.
