There are several modes of adaptation to postural perturbations used to withstand balance disturbances and reduce the effects of muscle fatigue. We summarize experimental results, which demonstrate that there are several modes of adaptation to postural perturbations, and we discuss the properties of these adaptive processes. The presented findings suggest that patients with balance disorders would benefit from rehabilitation programs that include a mixture of exercises aimed at training specific motor tasks or motor programs.
