Marching-in-Place Exercise to Improve Balance
- Stand with a chair in front of you and a wall behind you. If you begin to fall, you may use them for support. Standing in a corner will also work.
- Stand with your feet slightly apart (as you normally stand) and your arms at your side.
- March in place, lifting your knees high toward the ceiling.
- Do this 20 times.
Do this exercise twice a day. Try to progress to doing this 30 times and then with your eyes closed.
