Preferred PT: Gait & Balance

Patient Success Spotlight


The NIH (National Institute of Health) recommends seeking help if an individual thinks they have a balance disorder? About 15 percent of American adults (33 million) had a balance or dizziness problem in 2008. Balance disorders can be caused by certain health conditions, medications, or a problem in the inner ear or the brain. A balance disorder can profoundly affect activities of daily living and increase risk for falls. To help you decide whether to seek medical help for balance or dizziness problems, the NIH recommends you ask yourself the following questions: • Do I feel unsteady? • Do I feel as if the room is spinning around me, even for a very brief time? • Do I feel as if I’m moving when I know I’m sitting or standing still? • Do I lose my balance and fall? • Do I feel as if I’m falling? • Do I feel lightheaded or as if I might faint? • Do I have blurred vision? • Do I ever feel disoriented—losing my sense of time or location? If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, talk to your health professional without delay – Call Preferred Physical Therapy Associates before you fall!

This place outshines others! “Unfortunately life took a turn and caused me to need PT. Fortunately, I have met Trevor and his team. Having had PT in NY and in Boca I must say that Trevor and his team (I had the pleasure of meeting with several of his staff) has been an experience like no other! First off, the environment is very warm and friendly. A huge plus for someone who never needed therapy/help before. Next, they are very accommodating - lots of space, therapists, and private rooms when the session calls for it. Lastly, Trevor himself always welcomes you with a smile. He’s always walking around and “in the know” about everything going on - its a pleasure to see the owner be “hands-on”! If you need PT, OTor any otherT, I highly recommend this place! In fact, I travel past other therapy places because this place outshines others!” - Jeff G. NY/Boca (Actual Google Review)
