Kids Balance Exercises: One Leg Stand
Chiropractic care for your kids can greatly benefit their physical and mental development including improving their balance. Kids Chiropractic care is gentle, precise, and effective. Here’s a tip on how you can help your kids improve their balance with One Leg Stand.
Steps for One Leg Stand:
- Stand on one foot and place your hands on your hips and balance for 5 seconds. Repeat on the other leg.
- Focus on looking straight ahead at the wall, not at the ground!
- Be able to do this for 10 seconds without wobbling or falling over
LEVEL 2: Do this with your eyes closed
The ability to stand on one leg is important. When walking, you spend about 40% of your time with one foot on the ground as the opposite leg is moving through the air. The single-leg stance is a simple, but very effective exercise for improving balance.
