Background: Weakness, dizziness, vertigo, and/or disequilibrium are conditions that may affect a person’s quality of life and safety with mobility. These impairments may contribute to imbalance and may ultimately lead to falls. Physical therapy can be an effective strategy to improve mobility and quality of life using balance retraining, manual therapy techniques, strengthening exercises, and activities focused on reducing dizziness and vertigo.
Southern Indiana Rehab Hospital will conduct a Balance and Dizziness Seminar covering topics relating to causes of imbalance, headaches, dizziness, vertigo and how physical therapy can be helpful in treating these conditions. The program is free to the public. Following the seminar there will be an opportunity for questions and answers, as well as a free balance screening.
