Vestibular (Balance) Rehabilitation
Vestibular rehabilitation (VR), or vestibular rehabilitation therapy (VRT) is a specialized form of therapy intended to alleviate both the primary and secondary problems caused by vestibular disorders. It is an exercise-based program primarily designed to reduce vertigo and dizziness, gaze instability, and/or imbalance and falls.
How often do seniors fall?
One-third of Americans aged 65+ falls each year. Every 13 seconds, an older adult is treated in the emergency room for a fall; every 20 minutes, an older adult dies from a fall. Falls are the leading cause of fatal injury and the most common cause of nonfatal trauma-related hospital admissions among older adults.
We at Excel Physical Therapy and Wellness will look into finding out the root of the problem causing your dizziness and/or falls and provide appropriate intervention to avoid falls. We believe in “Prevention is better than Cure”.
