Balance why it is important? I cannot stress the importance of balance in individuals of all activity levels. Balance is defined as the body’s ability to maintain its centre of mass over the base of support. More importantly, it is the body’s ability to do this during movement.
THE IMPORTANCE OF GOOD PHYSICAL BALANCE
balance is a sense we don’t notice until it’s not working as it should. Balancing is an underrated principle of our everyday functioning. It keeps you upright, allows you to walk without assistance and helps prevent injury. But various things can reduce this sense from both an internal and external perspective.
The Complexity of Balancing
Simply put, a good sense of balance allows us to recognize our position relative to other objects around us. And including the surface on which we are standing, walking, or running. This is an important aspect of carrying out both simple and complex movements. It allows you to perform everyday activities you may take for granted. Such as walking in open spaces without objects to hold onto or turning to talk to a friend while walking. This sense also makes it possible to negotiate steps or curbs without a rail, walk on grass or sand, and step over obstacles. And while it may be apparent when someone has particularly good (or bad), there is actually much more happening internally than what we can see on the outside. Balance is maintained by the vestibular system, a small organ in the inner ear, and it can be negatively affected when the organ is damaged or not working correctly. This can happen in several ways, but the most common sources of declined balancing ability are external substances and the ageing process. However, the ageing process does not stop anyone from improving their balance with practice.
