Stability - An Explanation

“A LACK of stability makes the brain WORRY as it tries to survive the day.”

Stability is developed!

We are not born with stability, we develop it by exploring our ENVIRONMENT. We start to ADAPT to that environment by LIFTING the head and looking around, ROLLING to being on our back to our front, CRAWLING to get to new places, we PULL ourselves up to STANDING; wobble a bit then fall down!

The following areas of the body designed to be STABLE.

? Feet
? Knees
? Lower Back
? Shoulder Blades
? Lower and Middle NecAk

A LACK of stability makes the brain WORRY as it tries to survive the day and stop us falling, tripping, injuring ourselves.



Stability is more than BALANCE, it is CONTROL and COORDINATION.

If you want a quick test see if you can:

? STAND ON ONE LEG FOR 20 SECONDS
? STAND ON ONE LEG WITH EYES CLOSED FOR 10 SECONDS
? TOUCH YOUR TOES

AND not lose balance.

If you CANNOT do that, then you may well have a stability PROBLEM.

The GOOD news is it can be improved, and I can HELP you and TEACH you how.

GET IN TOUCH if you CANNOT do the balance test and RUN, CYCLE, PLAY FOOTBALL, RUGBY, CRICKET, TENNIS, or simply want to live life without ACHES and PAINS.

Next up STRENGTH and then how it all WORKS TOGETHER.

Until then take care,
