Improve Your Balance, Walk This Way

Do you ever wonder how you could improve your balance? It is possible without a trainer, bosu ball or complex regimen. The secret is to walk in a swimming pool. Public and private pools are often 3 ½ to 4 feet deep, allowing most people to readily walk without support or get their hair wet. I have primarily used Pullen Aquatic Center’s therapy lane for several years to relieve pain from arthritis, restore strength in my weakened leg from paralysis, and regain balance in my stride.
