If you suffer from dizziness, vertigo, imbalance or hearing loss, you may have a condition known as Vestibular Dysfunction. If so, you'll be pleased to know that HackensackUMC Palisades offers Vestibular Rehabilitation in our physical therapy department.
According to the National Institute of Health (NIH), balance problems and dizziness are two of the most common health complaints of adults seeking help from a doctor. Many of these patients are surprised to learn that the source of their imbalance may be in their inner ears.
Balance related falls account for 300,000 hip fractures and 50 percent of accidental deaths for those over age 65. Ninety percent of all causes of dizziness can be identified after a thorough medical evaluation; however, if left improperly diagnosed or untreated, problems can linger for years. Most balance problems can be treated with vestibular rehabilitation.
