Balance and Stabilization Training Zone!
At Perform Better, we know Balance and Stabilization Training! We're here to answer your balance and stabilization questions, or to help you select the proper stabilization and balance training equipment for your needs.
Balance and stabilization training focuses on the ability to maintain proper posture over the body's support base. Balance training is beneficial for improving dynamic joint stabilization (the ability to stabilize or keep the joints in proper alignment during movement). Dynamic joint stabilization is critical to injury prevention and improved performance. Typically performed on a single-leg and/or on unstable equipment, balance training is fun and challenging!

"Balance and stability are keys to functional movement. A simple balance beam can be added to any program to create active rest and reset the sensory motor system. If screening and testing reveals a balance problem you have many creative ways to address it, but start with the basics like beams, and discs and balance pad."
