HOW’S YOUR BALANCE? We can get you feeling steady on your feet again!

Do You Suffer From Vertigo Or Dizziness? Your ability to balance is an incredibly complex action that requires millions of nerves, hundreds of muscles, your brain, and your inner ear all working together to stop you from falling onto your face. Many people think having poor balance happens in just older people. However, poor balance is one of the leading causes for sports injuries, chronic back pain and much more. Having poor balance often goes undetected until it is very severe and puts one at exceptional risk for injury. It is even worse for older adults, especially over age 65, of which one third fall each year. People who experience a fall are at increased risk for future falls too. Some balance problems are caused by joint tightness or muscle weakness. For example, when there is a loss of the mobility in the

ankle joint and multiple joints of the foot, you cannot adapt well to uneven terrain. Balance is also affected with an injury to the brain like a stroke or a concussion. Vertigo and dizziness can be due to a problem in the inner ear. All these balance problems can be helped with the right kind of rehabilitation. Vertigo and dizziness caused by inner ear problems and brain injuries can be helped by special exercises called Vestibular Rehabilitation. These exercises were first designed by NASA to help the astronauts get used to gravity once they returned from space. We can help you regain your balance, walk and even run better!

Reduce Your Fear of Falling, Naturally!

Are you suffering from dizziness, vertigo or loss of balance? As many as 76 million Americans will experience these symptoms at some time in their lives. However, you don’t have to suffer. Dizziness is an off-balance feeling while vertigo is when the room spins. These symptoms can be treated with the right vestibular exercises. Vestibular exercises use specific head, body, and eye movements to retrain your inner ear to restore your stability and balance. A common vestibular problem, especially in older adults, is called BPPV or Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo. People with this condition have brief episodes of intense vertigo when lying down or sitting up from lying. BPPV is caused

when crystals in the inner ear fall off a membrane and become loose. The good news is BPPV can be completely resolved in 1 to 2 treatments using a specialized technique known by the therapists at Complete Physical Rehabilitation. • Conquer your fear of falling • Feel steadier on your feet • Stop sensations of rocking or spinning • Gain more strength and energy • Maintain your independence

• Regain your freedom • Feel like yourself again • Get back to living

 “My tinnitus and vertigo greatly affected my daily life. I had to use a cane and hold on to my children when I would walk. I also felt dizzy so I would have to be very careful when walking. Physical therapy with Dr. James helped me tremendously! It helped me to cope with my tinnitus and helped me regain my balance, in addition to much less vertigo symptoms. He provided me with amazing resources, treatments, and exercises for my condition. I am very pleased with the services I received from Dr. James at Complete Physical Rehab.
