the benefits of Wobble Boards and Balance Boards
A wobble board, or sometimes referred to as a balance board, is a very simple fitness device. It doesn’t take a fitness expert to become proficient at using a Wobble Board. Most Wobble Boards are made of a round wooden base, although some are made with a hard plastic and other materials. They have a dome underneath that makes the board wobble when you stand on it. Wobble Boards come in different sizes and a wide variety of styles and can be used by anyone looking to improve their balance and coordination, young or old.
Daily workouts on a wobble board will provide superior stability of your core muscles and pelvic girdle. This can have many benefits to your health and fitness for people of all ages and abilities. Balance training is especially beneficial for athletes, dancers, gymnasts, and anyone else requires good balance and stability in their work or play. Otherwise, the body couldn’t move with ease and gracefully, and that could potentially lead to serious injuries.

As we mentioned earlier, balance boards (they’re also called “wobble boards”) have been around for a while. They come in all shapes and sizes. Some are discs with rounded bottoms, while others are shaped like skateboards with knobs underneath them.
Even though they’re all designed differently, balance boards, in general, try to do one thing: improve your balance.
But are they really effective? We did some research through the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM).
In 2011, they published a piece on using balance training with older adults. It pointed out that our balance can be maintained and improved as we get older. We think this bodes well for balance boards because they can be a piece of workout equipment that will not go out of style, nor is a fad.
Specifically, the ACSM said balance training can:
Condition the body
Improve stability and postural alignment
Help prevent falls
Another published piece from the ACSM, “Ankle Sprains and the Athlete”, points out that balance boards are “an excellent rehabilitation technique that helps strengthen and stabilize the ankle.” It even goes as far as to say that you can reduce the risk of re-injury by up to 50% using balance boards during rehab.
Even the Mayo Clinic has pages devoted to balancing exercises, which, they say, should be included in your daily routine and can improve your stability.
So what’s the takeaway here for the average person who’s interested in using these boards? They seem to be an excellent way to improve your balance, posture and rehab injuries.
