  • Effectiveness
    Major (for loss of balance)
  • Side effects
    None
  • Adherence
    Usually
  • Burden
    Somewhat hard to take
Advice & Tips: I found out I was not walking correctly and this made me "tippy". BIG is an intense program. My PT identified my issues and applied the process with regard to many of my daily activities. To continue the exercises on my own takes a lot of discipline. I tend to alternate all the various physical activity to what I think needs the most work.
Cost: < $25 monthly
