If you could solve problems that you didn't even know existed... Would you?
Have you ever fallen down, stumbled, sprained a knee or an ankle while jumping, landing, running or even just walking? Most people will try and treat the symptoms which they identify as lack of strength or weak knees or ankles, instead of the problem which could simply be poor balance and balance recovery skills.
The benefits of balance recovery is an ignored training protocol for one simple reason. The human balance system is designed to make balance and balance recovery sub-conscious and automatic. Everyone "thinks" they have adequate balance skills. And most people won't fix anything unless they feel it's broken. That's a big mistake.
In sports and most physical activities, once your body moves out of its balance comfort zone, our balance systems quickly become overwhelmed with input to try and recover balance. Unfortunately, without balance training this results in inadequate performance and even the risk of injury. There are numerous medical studies that prove balance training works.
How and why does a Vew-Do Balance Board work.
The human body uses a triad of sensory systems to maintain balance. The eyes, the inner ear and proprioceptors in the joints for spatial and kinesthetic awareness *positioning of your body limbs and touch sensors located at the bottom of your feet.*
A Vew-Do Balance Board continuously disrupts your center of balance using dynamic and multi-directional motion. This forces you to use and develop all three of your body's balance systems. Along with the physical conditioning, you're body will store this information as muscle memory.
When you re-create an unbalanced state in a sports specific environment, you will sub-consciously unlock your recovery method. In other words, when you become unstable, you'll react quickly and recover. That's because muscle memory instantly tells the brain, "hey, I've been in this situation before and I know how to recover from it."
