Balance is the ability to maintain the body's centre of mass over its base of support. It is an important aspect of gross motor development and is essential for a wide range of physical activities, such as walking, running, and playing sports. Good balance allows a person to move independently, confidently and comfortably in a variety of situations, such as walking on uneven surfaces or negotiating obstacles. It also helps to prevent falls and injuries.

How Does Balance Affect Daily Life?

Problems with balance can affect a person's daily life in a number of ways. For example, a person with poor balance may have difficulty walking or standing for extended periods of time, which can affect their mobility and ability to perform daily tasks. They may also be at greater risk of falls and injuries, which can impact their overall physical and mental health.

What to Do If You Have Balance Problems?

If you are experiencing difficulty with balance, it is important to speak with your GP or a qualified Physiotherapist. They can carry out a number of assessments on your balance and provide guidance on how to improve it. In some cases, balance problems may be related to underlying medical conditions, such as inner ear disorders or neurological conditions, and may require specialised treatment. 

If you notice a sudden change in your Balance or coordination, it is important to first discuss this with your GP to rule out any other underlying medical concerns.
