There are many reasons why you may have issues with balance. From aging to neurological conditions, inner ear disorders, medication, and other root causes, poor balance can increase falling, which can lead to additional injuries.
Balance Problems – Symptoms
Below are some symptoms of balance issues you may be experiencing:
- Vertigo (spinning or sense of motion)
- Feeling lightheaded or faint
- Loss of balance
- Feeling as if you may fall
- Vision issues (blurriness)
At Woodard Wellness, we offer balance therapy treatment that can improve your balance, decrease the risks of falls, and help with your overall function.
As we age, the risk of falls increases, and the consequences can be severe. Falls can lead to serious injuries, including fractures, head trauma, and even death,
One of the most effective ways to prevent falls is through regular exercise. Exercise can improve balance, strength, and flexibility, all of which are essential for maintaining stability and reducing the risk of falls.
The team at Woodard Wellness can provide guidance on exercise techniques, proper footwear, assistive devices, and modifications to your home environment that can further reduce the risk of falls.
We can also assess our patients for any underlying conditions that may increase the risk of falls, such as vision or hearing impairments, medication side effects, or neurological disorders. By identifying and addressing these issues, we can help prevent falls before they occur.
