Seaford- Cara Konlian 6Do you ever experience dizziness or spinning? Do you ever feel a little off-balance? Do you become nauseated with certain head movements or positions? Have you ever fallen? Do you require an assistive device to walk due to losing your balance?

Fitness Forum Physical Therapy will be offering complimentary balance and vestibular screenings for the community during the month of October. These screenings will be performed by a licensed physical therapist.

Dizziness, vertigo and imbalance are the second most common complaints heard in physician’s offices. According to the National Institute of Health, dizziness will occur in 70% of the population at some point in their lives. In fact, dizziness is more common than low back pain and headaches in people from 17-64 years of age.

Fitness Forum offers a specialized Vestibular Rehabilitation and Balance Training Program that assists individuals to compensate for a loss within the vestibular system or a sense of imbalance, and help them improve their quality of life. Individuals will learn how to manage their symptoms of dizziness, vertigo and imbalance. Each program is individually designed.

To schedule a free balance screening during the month of October, call 410-295-4941. Morning, afternoon and evening times are available.
