Physical balance is the ability to maintain your center of gravity within your base of support and it is different for everyone! Depending on your height, weight and how you walk or stand, your center of gravity might be different from the person next to you.

So…why is having better balance so important? It’s because the leading cause of fatal and non-fatal injury in adults is due to accidental falling. Let’s join Maddi Stewart, Physical Therapist at Therapy in Motion, as she tells you all about your balance and how to improve it to avoid injury.
