Ankle EXERCISES on the Balance Pad

Instable surfaces, such as the Balance Pad, are used for rehabilitation and prevention.

I myself contracted a ligament rupture during a workout some years ago. With the help of the Balance Pad I was able to rebuild my proprioceptors and so not only the injury healed but also my nerve transmission was restored. My foot was practically as new.

By keeping balance and by coupling movements during this holding on an unstable surface, the risk of injury to ankle and knee joints can also be reduced.

In addition, such training is wonderful for the entire trunk musculature, which has to do the stability work.

The Balance Pad EXERCISES are optimally suitable as a additional training for all kinds of sports. I start my running technique training with them.

They also promote balance. And that is what we need most in life to be happy and satisfied. Balance.

Life is all about balance

I wish you a good balance on the Balance Pad and also in your life! See you soon!
