Who Does Balance Impairment Affect?
Balance issues can affect the young, old, and everyone in between. If you are falling a lot, becoming dizzy suddenly, or feel the need to hold furniture while walking, we can help. Balance issues can be neurological in nature, come from inner ear issues, or even from decreased sensation in your feet. Each of the above require specific, individual treatment that our staff can work on with you. After we develop an individual plan to improve your balance, function, and safety, we can provide you with the relief you’ve been looking for. For more information about our balance impairment therapy services, contact us at (304) 237-5585 today.
Why Do Balance Problems Occur?
When you are having a hard time remaining stable and upright, either when you are standing or sitting, you may have a balance impairment. When your vision, inner ear, muscular system, or proprioception (awareness of one’s own body position) is off, it can throw off your balance and lead to impairment problems. Balance problems occur for many different reasons, including:
Inner ear problems
Lack of activity or a sedentary lifestyle
Spinal cord injury
Call us today if you are experiencing balance issues due to any of the previously stated causes, and we will work with you to get your balance back!
