Do You Have More Issues With Balance Outside Of Your Home?

Do You Have More Issues With Balance Outside Of Your Home?

Logically, I believe i can rationalize why, but is it normal to have more issues with balance outside if your home? I am more familiar with my surroundings and also don't need to walk as far in my home, but when i venture out i am constantly losing balance. Loft crutches help, but (pandemic aside) I'm really starting to not want to venture out.

Yes, having more balance issues outside the home is very common. You hit the nail on the head when you mentioned unfamiliar environments.

Working with a physical therapist that is LSVT or PWR certified can help.

If you are interested in learning more about exercise programs or amplitude based training you can check out the Facebook group I created to help support the exercise journey off people with Parkinson's disease.

Yes showers are bad I'm so glad we have a big walk in shower and I have a shower chair really helps. Plus COPD is bad during the shower but after really helps your breathing
