Vertigo Treatments and Therapy
Wednesday, April 4th At 11:00
Vertigo can cause you to feel that the world around you is moving or spinning even though you are standing still. It may only last a minute or it may go on for days, or it may come and go over months or even years. It is an unwelcome feeling and can cause you to feel like you are going to fall over or pass out. It may impact your ability to walk. Vertigo can have several causes and patients often think that there are no treatment options. When vertigo is the result of an inner ear disorder physical therapy can reduce symptoms in just a few treatments. Rolene Hodge, a Lakeland Health Physical Therapist, will be our presenter on physical therapy as an effective treatment option for vertigo patients. Please call RVSC 469-4556 for event registration to insure that we have sufficient seating and materials.
