Experts helping you live a better life
Balance disorders, including dizziness and vertigo, are common and sometimes lead to an increased likelihood of experiencing a fall. In fact, in Lee County, the mortality rate in seniors is higher as a result of a fall than a motor vehicle accident.
The consequences of untreated chronic dizziness and balance problems often lead to a decreased sense of self-confidence, a decline in functional abilities and a tendency to adopt a sedentary lifestyle which greatly increases the risk of falls.
Finding the exact cause of a person's balance and/or dizziness problem can be a daunting task, and people often report having to consult with several health care providers before finding the help and solutions they need.
Balance retraining and vestibular therapy play a vital role in the recovery of people with dizziness, vertigo and/or balance problems.
