single leg standing exercises.
Start with a solid surface in front of you, for example; a kitchen counter. Hands lightly resting on the surface.
Stand on your affected leg, ensure that your knee is soft and not locked into a straight position (Fig A), do not let your knees touch each other and keep your head up.
You may find it useful to fix your gaze on an object ahead. Gradually raise your hands from the surface (Fig B).
