on sensory organization and attentional demand for postural control in people with Parkinson disease: a randomized controlled trial," Physical Therapy, vol.
Based on the analysis of results in the present study, 3 weeks of conventional exercise program along with balance training
proved to be an effective method to improve the balance in subjects with transtibial amputees with either conventional or ultramodern prosthesis.
Study 2 showed improvements in postural stability as a result of 4 wk of balance training
using the balance rehabilitation and training apparatus.
The prolonged maintenance of balance training
effects after the termination of balance training
suggests the establishment of a new adaptive control system.
Because the somatosensory system in general and proprioception in particular influence balance status, it is possible that the kinesthetic senses in the children's joints improved after eight weeks of balance training
. As a result of their likely increase in their reliance on proprioception, we observed improvements in dynamic balance of the children.
The development of balance training
through the little toes can be traced to the late twentieth century when it was taught to opera singers and instrumentalists as well as athletes in Vienna by Professor Muller-Preis (Pinschof, 2011b).
Commercialized training facilities often emphasize the benefit of balance training
in preventing athletic joint injuries and falling.
A final issue with the exercise programs used in this study is that if the study wanted to compare relatively discrete strength training and balance training
programs, then the squatting exercise should form part of the strength training program, rather than the balance training
program (though, of course, in reality a program for people with arthritis would often incorporate both strength and balance training
If you incorporate balance training
in your workout, as soon as your body detects a misstep, it will fire muscles that will protect the joint and realign the body into a safer body position.
Strength training would be a major component along with balance training
and regular stretching (6).
Wolf, MD, and his colleagues at Emory University School of Medicine in Atlanta, write that this study offers a "compelling argument for urge incontinence as an additional risk (factor) for fall-related occurrences." He adds, "Vigorous study should be devoted to combining drug therapies for incontinence with injury-prevention strategies like strength and balance training
