Vestibular Exercises: A Fun And Natural Way To Improve Your Balance

Hi everyone! For years I have been doing balancing exercises to maintain my vestibular system health, overall body alignment, and good health. This is due to years of double vision, closed head injury, leg length discrepancy and other conditions. I’m not your average bear. I’m better looking.

You may already know this, but the vestibular system is where your inner ear is located. The health of this system determines how well your balance is, your overall level of well-being, and how engaged you are in everyday activities. Wow…see how it’s important to keep it healthy? That’s only a very simplified description, too.

Anyways…I found an easy and safe way to regularly do some balancing exercises. It involves the water.

For a little background information: Vestibular rehab exercises typically involve sitting upright on a bed. Then, the exercise has you quickly fall to your left and stay in that position until you’re not dizzy. Slowly return to the sitting position. Repeat this exercise to the right.

A chair-based exercise involves sitting with your feet firmly planted on the surface. You keep your eyes open and quickly turn your head to the right. Keep it there until all dizziness subsides. Slowly return to center position. Repeat exercise to the left.

For more information, feel free to visit the Vestibular Disorders Association website at:
https://vestibular.org

These are good for land-based maneuvers. (Good, but NOT fun.) But…who wants land when water is available??!!

Recently I was in the swimming pool. I thought it would be fun to quickly do some log rolls. What could it hurt? I couldn’t fall. That’s the benefit of water exercises. 🙂 It worked out perfectly. It was a fun way to exercise my vestibular system.

And yet another reason you need to start heading into the water and working out. The water’s buoyancy naturally supports your body weight, making it impossible to fall. You could be the clumsiest person in the world, but the water doesn’t care. It’ll lift you up. 🙂

You say you’re afraid of water? Many people are. I’ll keep my tongue in check, but quickly say that it’s nothing to be ashamed of. A number of YMCAs offer swimming lessons to introduce others to the wonders of water.

Remember to keep your vestibular system in good shape to improve your longevity and overall health. You’ll be glad you did.

Find interesting? Kindly share…Thanks!
