Single-leg stance ball-wall

An exercise for single leg stability with added distraction from hand-eye coordination tasks.

  • stand on one leg with slight flexion at the hip, knee and ankle
  • maintain good lower extremity alignment (ie: foot stacked well, knee aligned, pelvis neutral or elevated on the lifted-leg side)
  • maintain balance and good position while bouncing and catching a ball off the wall
  • NOTE: can do underhand, shoulder height or overhead, depending on purpose and individual ability
