That’s according to research from UC Berkeley. Scientists say most balance disorders are caused by a problem in our inner ear or brain. But they’re also linked to muscle weakness in our feet. So any exercise that strengthens our feet can improve our coordination and balance.
That’s why researchers recommend doing toe curls. So try lifting your big toes without lifting the other toes. Or, use your feet to pick up small objects – like pencils. You’ll be less of a klutz in no time.
