We appreciate all of you who braved the heat this past Sunday to participate in another great walk through Balboa park!

We discussed the important topic of Balance and wanted to recap some key points:

Body Systems Important for Balance:

1) Vision

2) Vestibular(Inner Ear)

3) Muscle and Bone Structure/Strength

4) Nervous System(Sensory and Motor)-5 inputs: light touch, pressure, pain, temperature, vibration

5) Brain/Cerebellum-coordination/communication between Left and Right side of body

A link to the 6 exercises that can be done at home for balance:
