Coordination and Balance Practices

Improve your Peripheral Vision:

FINDING MY "BLIND SPOTS" AND SEEING INTO THEM:

  • It is not uncommon for there to be areas of our visual fields where we are just a bit slower at noticing that something is there or coming toward us.

  • Or we are reflexively slower at catching or responding to something in that area.

  • Notice what is true for you, and look into it. 

  • The idea is to try to minimize repetitive movements (like leaning over the same way every time) picking up a ball.

How to Un-Pattern a Limp:

  • At times, even though your injury has rehabilitated, a limp persists due to habituated movement patterns.

  • These practices can help unlock patterns through increasing conscious awareness, Left/Right re-patterning, using distraction to restore innate normal gait, as well as calibrating movement rhythms.
