When you have balance or dizziness problems, even basic life tasks can be a challenge. We can help.
Falls are a major public health concern. According to the CDC, more than one-third of adults 65 and older fall each year in the United States, and 20 percent to 30 percent of people who fall suffer moderate to severe injuries. Vertigo, dizziness and balance-related conditions are among the most common health problems in adults. Nearly 40 percent of U.S. adults experience vertigo at least once in their lifetime; an estimated 90 million Americans go to health care providers because of vertigo, dizziness or balance problems each year.
The Balance and Dizziness Center at Spine and Sport Physical Therapy developed out of an overwhelming community need. Our expert-level therapists at Spine and Sport have sought out specialized education to help combat these trends. We evaluate the whole body as it relates to balance, falling, vertigo and dizziness. The science of the process involves a comprehensive approach to the vestibular system, consisting of the neurology between the brain, the neck, the eyes and the inner ear. Our therapists will find the cause of your dizziness or balance problem and create a customized program to help you improve … so that even those basic life tasks can be easier, and you can get back to living life to its fullest.
