Fall Prevention and Balance Program
you dizzy, unsteady, or afraid of falling? Dizziness and feelings
of imbalance can take away your confidence with activities
you would normally enjoy. You might even stop being as active
due to fear or weakness and make the problem worse. A loss
of independence can be very frustrating. A fall prevention
program can help you regain your independence and return to
activities which you enjoy.
WHAT CAN BE DONE?
Our goal is to help you become as safe
and as independent as possible. Our program takes into account
your individual medical condition, your lifestyle, and your
individual needs. At the Clinic for Neurology, P.A. we can
help determine the reason for your dizziness or imbalance
by performing a comprehensive evaluation and designing an
appropriate treatment program. Under the direction of a physician,
we will perform tests on the four areas which affect your
- Inner Ear
A physical therapist will evaluate
your balance reactions and muscle strength and flexibility.
We utilize the newest technology in vestibular disorder evaluation
and therapy for dizziness and balance disorders.
HOW DO I MAKE AN APPOINTMENT?
Please ask your primary care physician
about whether you might benefit from our program. If you have
a prescription for physical therapy, you can call the clinic
for an appointment at 533-4402. Your physician may also refer
you to one of our neurologists for examination, or to the
physical therapist. Our program is covered by Medicare and
most private insurance carriers.
