This week is Balance Awareness Week, Sept 12-18th, 2016. Please join me and others in our fight to stop dizziness in its tracks. If you would like to learn more about your specific type of inner ear balance problem, the Vestibular Disorders Association website has very good patient information. Let’s continue working together to defeat dizziness!!!
This week, we are celebrating Balance Awareness Week at my physical therapy practice in Sarasota, Florida. In honor of this recognition, I am happy to share with you a new infographic from the Vestibular Disorders Association. Infographics are pictures boards that help to communicate a concept or idea. I hope this infographic helps you better understand what causes dizziness, and what to do about it!
Balance Awareness Week is September 15th-21st, 2014!
Are you having a balance problem? The goal of balance awareness week is to help people recognize if they are having a problem, and to urge them to seek help. Falling is not a normal part of aging. We know that falls can lead to serious injuries and even death. If you have had one fall with serious injury in the last 12 months, or 2 falls without injury, I encourage you to seek out a professional vestibular balance specialist. Something can be done to help your problem!
