Balance and Vestibular
Falls due to impaired balance are a leading cause of injury across adult and older adult populations. The act of balancing involves cooperation between Neurological and Physical Systems in our bodies. Physical activity in a safe, structured environment allows a person to challenge those Neurological and Physical Systems and to gain skill, strength and confidence without the risk of injury. With falls, an ounce of prevention is definitely worth a pound of cure. In addition to being extremely uncomfortable, Balance and Vestibular Disorders can impair function and limit a person form participating in the joys of life. Physical Therapy is often a first line remedy for balance problems and vestibular disorders like Vertigo.
