Health Tip: Using a Stability Ball
Here's how it may help

By Diana Kohnle

(HealthDay News) -- A stability ball may look like an overgrown beach ball, but its potential health benefits shouldn't be ignored.

The American Council on Exercise mentions these possible benefits:

  • Improves balance.
  • Strenthens trunk muscles.
  • Strengthens abdominal muscles, which may improve your posture.
  • Strengthens muscles of the core -- including the abdomen, chest and back.
