Free Balance Screening

Nov 15, 2012

Are you or someone you know experiencing falls or a fear of falling?  Your balance system is made up of three components: the inner ear, the vision system and the nerve receptors in your joints and surrounding tissues.   All three of these systems are in a continuous feedback loop through the brain to help us maintain our balance on level and uneven surfaces.  Some questions we ask patients with balance deficits are if you have had an ear infection recently and have you had your vision checked or had a change in your lenses recently.  After these are ruled out as a cause, we perform a series of tests in the clinic to attempt to grade any balance deficits that can be addressed through exercises and make sure you do not have positional vertigo (BPPV).   Take advantage of our FREE BALANCE SCREENING
