Ball Hand Offs helps you feel less self-conscious while walking, which in itself can be counterproductive or cause falls.
The more shuffled and fractured your gate becomes, the more likely a fall.
This exercise is not recommended if you need a cane or other assistance to walk.
You’ll need a partner who is comfortable walking backward and handling a small ball, such as a tennis ball.
Start at the end of a long hallway with your partner facing you a few feet in front.
Walk foward while your partner walks backward handing off the ball back and forth as you go.
Repeat three to four times.
