Treating Dizziness: Balance Awareness Week

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, Sept 15th-21st, 2014

Balance Awareness Week is September 15th-21st, 2014!Balance Awareness Week

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!

Listen. Listening is the most important step in understanding a patient’s concern. It is the most basic beginning, and in health care today, so often undervalued. It directs understanding, direction of testing, and formulation of a plan. It is the most important step in paving the road to treatment and recovery.

Learn. My role is not only to learn from my patients, but to guide them in how to learn from me, what they should do to take back their lives and create positive change.

Live. Life is a gift. The purpose of all treatment at Equinox Physical Therapy is to restore function, independence, and freedom to clients recovering from or living with an illness.
