Who Knows Balance?

Whether you are at work, sport or leisure good balance is essential for uninterrupted performance and success.  It is a complex skill that comes from well functioning and integrated proprioceptive, vestibular, visual, nervous and musculoskeletal systems.

Dysfunction of any of these systems, whether due to age, illness or injury, reduces  your balance capacity. If you have any concerns regarding your balance seek help from your physiotherapist or physcial therapist (physio).
