3. Why is it important to have good balance?

Having good balance means you are able to control and maintain your body's position, whether you are moving or still. An intact sense of balance helps you walk without staggering, get up from a chair without falling, and climb stairs without tripping.

Good balance is important to help you get around, stay independent, and carry out daily activities.
