Body balance and coordination exist when the body is used for what it is designed for. Exercises such as walking, swimming, yoga, pilates, bicycling, martial arts and bodybuilding all help to improve muscle coordination, especially in maturing adults.

Activities such as working at a desk, reading, and watching television do the opposite for the body. Without realizing it, most people have extreme stress in their muscles. This muscular tension contributes to muscle tightness, restricted movement, and joint pain. This occurs simply because they sit for many hours every day and do not perform regular exercises that will work to keep all of the muscles in their body in balance.

Better Body Balance Means:

· Better autonomic function, digestion, cardiovascular etc.

· Improved mood. Anxious people often tend to have poor balance.

· Better cognition, thought, concentration etc.

· Better posture.

· Better spinal function and less subluxation.

· Better pelvic floor function.

· Improved performance.

· Reduced accidents and falls.

· Improved co-ordination, motor skills and control of the body.

· Better confidence.

· Better sports performance.

The task of maintaining upright stance, balance and coordination in children, adults and even the elderly involves a complex control system that uses and integrates the large amount of sensory information that surrounds us. The brains cerebellum and vestibular system as well as visual information, touch information, proprioception from sensors in the muscles and the sensory receptors of the canals of the middle ear are all involved in helping humans maintain upright stance, balance and co-ordination.
