Balance and Sports
Balance is very important part of keeping your body upright, moving fluidly in space and maintaining muscle balance. There are small receptors in each of your joints that help you to control your body’s movement in space. If these receptors are compromised, your balance can be negatively affected.
A sports injury can affect how you balance in the small or large ways. A sprain, a weak muscle, swelling and surgery can affect how your muscles firing and/or how your joints tell where your body is moving. If you have an injury, it is very important to have you balance checked by your physical therapist.
