Comprehensive Assessment of Postural Systems


Why is Balance Important?

Good balance is the fundamental pre-requisite to everything your body does. This is not just limited to the control of muscles and joints but also your organs and glands.


Your balance has far reaching effects on your body as a whole both emotionally and physically.  Your brain needs to accurately pin point where you are in space instantly. If the accuracy or speed of this response is impaired the risk of injury and falls increases greatly.


Additionally, we often see related problems in other body systems. A common example of this is the nausea, vomiting and emotional distress that so often accompanies motion sickness.
