10 Best Balance Exercises (Basic) – Ask Doctor Jo

oh hey everybody it's doctor Jo and Miss
Remy, and today we're gonna show you my top ten basic balance exercises. so let's
get started so with balance exercises, you always
want to start off holding on to something. and you also want to start off
with just about 10 to 15 seconds of these. but eventually you want to work
your way up to about a minute of each. so the first one is just going to be a
Romberg stance. and so Romberg stance is just when you have your feet as close
together as you can, and you just try to balance. for the Romberg stance, have a
chair or something sturdy next to you just in case you need it for balance.
bring your feet as close together as you can and then just balance. so number two is Romberg's with your
eyes closed.

So this is the same thing. it's just the stance, but this time
you're going to close your eyes while you're doing it.
make sure and hold on to something if you need to. for the Romberg stance with
your eyes closed, make sure you have a chair or something
sturdy next to you just in case you need it for balance. bring your feet as close
together as you can and then close your eyes. so number three is the Romberg again, but
now you're going to turn your head from side to side.

So this just kind of throws
your visual off-balance a little bit. so again make sure and hold on to something
to start off with. for Romberg stance with head movement side to side, make
sure you have a chair or something sturdy next to you just in case you need
it for balance. bring your feet as close together as you can, and then just turn
your head nice and smoothly from side to side. so now number four is Romberg looking up
and down, doing head movements up and down. so again it's just throwing that
balance off a little bit. for Romberg stance with head movements up and down,
make sure you have something sturdy next to you like a chair or countertop just
in case you need it for balance.

Bring your feet as close together as you can,
and then just look up and down. so number five is the Romberg on an
uneven service. so you can use like a pillow. if you've got a foam mat you can
use a foam mat. some people even fold up their yoga mat. for Romberg stance on
uneven surfaces, you can put a pillow on the ground, or if you have some foam you
can use the foam. step on the pillow. use a chair or something sturdy next to you
just in case you need it for balance, and put your feet as close together as you
can and then balance. yeah.
oh alright. so number six is a tandem stance. tandem is just one foot right in
front of the other, so you can start modified and just have them kind of next
to each other, but eventually you want your foot one foot in front of the other.
for a tandem stance, make sure you have a chair or something sturdy next to you
just in case you need it for balance, then place one foot directly in front of
the other and just balance.

So number seven is tandem stance with
your eyes closed. like Remy's getting sleepy. so again, with your eyes closed,
make sure you have something to hold on to or something close by. for a tandem
stance with your eyes closed, make sure you have a chair or something sturdy
next to you just in case you need it for balance. place one foot directly in front
of the other, and then close your eyes. number eight is tandem with your head
turned side to side. so again, this just changes the visual it makes it a lot
harder for balance. for a tandem stance with head movement side to side, make
sure you have a chair or something sturdy next to you just in case you need
it for balance, then place one foot directly in front of the other, and then
just turn your head from side to side. so number nine is tandem again, but now
with head movements up and down. it's up and down right yeah. for tandem stance
with head movements up and down, make sure you have a chair or something
sturdy next to you just in case you need it for balance.

place one foot in front
of the other and they move your head up and down. whoa. number 10 is tandem on an uneven
surface. that's crazy Remy isn't it? so remember you can use a pillow, you can
fold up a yoga mat, or like a foam mat. for a tandem stance on uneven surfaces,
you can use a pillow. put it on the ground. put a chair or something sturdy
next to you for balance just in case you need it.
step on the pillow and put one foot in front of the other, and then balance. alright. so there you have it. the top
