Balance Board

Coordination and balance are important aspects of a physical therapy treatment program for knee pain related to arthritis.

Physical therapists will often work with their patients in practicing their activities of daily living, like how to get in and out of a car, or how to pick something up from the floor. ┬áIt is believed that practicing the simple aspects of daily life will build a patient’s confidence so they can accomplish higher degrees of activity and exercise.

Simple balance board exercises can not only make activities of daily living easier, but also help improve muscle strength, physical performance, and knee function.
