Physical Therapy -> Balance -> Reaction Strategy

Reaction Strategy

There are three main reaction strategies we use to catch ourselves if we fall. Ankle strategy - using our ankle and lower leg muscles to respond to a small loss of balance (like when you're trying to stand on a trampoline and not move). Hip strategy - using our bigger leg muscles to react to a bigger push or to stop ourselves from moving (like when you bend your hips and knees to get lower to the ground to steady yourself like on a skateboard). Stepping strategy - when you step to the front, side, or back to catch your balance (like if brother gets mad and shoves you real big).
