Lack of balance can make exercise challenging, but primary care physician Dr. Costley is here to help. Finding an activity that can improve your fitness without risking further injury should be a priority. Depending on the severity of your balance issues, you might consider starting with a recumbent stationary bike to improve your cardiac health, and using light hand weights while seated to improve upper body muscle tone. An athletic trainer at a gym should be able to provide you further guidance. A physical therapy referral from your primary care provider may be another option. Remember to start slow and gradual with any new exercise routine.
