More than 90 million American adults experience dizziness or balance problems at some time in their lives. Such issues have the potential to seriously disrupt daily routine. Fortunately, there’s great news. Studies have revealed that 80 to 90 percent of people with balance problems can maintain or recover their stability. So, for those who suffer from imbalance, dizziness or loss of mobility, now’s the time to take action.
On Thursday, March 18, at 6:30 p.m., Crouse Hospital will present a community health seminar, “Getting Back in Balance,” free and open to the public, in the Marley Education Center, 765 Irving Ave., Syracuse.
Crouse experts Hayes Wanamaker, MD, Crouse Hospital’s chief of otolaryngology, and Ilona Prouty, PT, a certified balance therapist, will address important topics regarding balance management and control. The speakers will guide attendees through the causes of balance disorders, while also explaining terms, such as dizziness. Wanamaker and Prouty will discuss the latest treatments in balance therapy, along with a number of helpful tips and techniques to regain stability and confidence.
Light refreshments will be served before the program. Free parking is available in the Marley and Crouse garages. To attend, register by calling 315/472-2464.
