Physical Therapy -> Balance -> Standing

Standing

Standing balance is important for staying upright when we're standing. This can be when we're first learning how to stand while holding onto parent's fingers, and it can be when you’re a big kid trying to stand and move in line for lunch. It uses a lot of muscles in our whole body to stand statically and dynamically.
