Marching-in-Place Exercise to Improve Balance

Marching-in-Place Exercise to Improve Balance

Marching-in-place exercise
  • 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.
