The Basics of Balance

We spend most of our lives trying to balance many things whether it be our checkbook, time management, or even or diet. But the most important thing we need is the physical balance, and as we age it is key to have balance to keep doing the things we love to do. When you have physical balance you are in control of your body. The better your balance the easier it is to do things and prevent injury. Balance is maintained by the vestibular system, a small organ in the inner ear, and it can be negatively affected when the organ is damaged or not working correctly. That is why it is important to properly train and work on your balance to maintain it.
