Feeling Dizzy?

FREE Balance Screenings

Danielle Vaughan, PT, DPT Vestibular Rehab Specialist

South Hill – A balance disorder is a condition that makes you feel unsteady or dizzy.  If you are standing, sitting, or lying down, you might feel as if you are moving, spinning, or floating.  If you are walking, you might suddenly feel as if you are tipping over.  Balance is easily taken for granted.  However, when the fragile vestibular organs of the inner ear are damaged by illness or injury, anyone can lose the ability to balance.

Do you suffer from dizziness, vertigo or imbalance?  Do you have problems concentrating, vision disturbance or hearing changes?

If you are seeking answers to questions like these you should participate in a free balance screening at VCU Health Community Memorial Hospital’s Rehab & Exercise Therapy Center.

The FREE balance screenings will take place on Tuesday, July 12th from 8:30AM -11:30AM in the CMH Rehab and Exercise Therapy Center, located at 750 Lombardy Street in South Hill.

Screenings will be performed by Danielle Vaughan, PT, DPT Vestibular Rehab Specialist.  Danielle has extensive experience in treating patients with vestibular system disorders as she evaluates and treats patients with dizziness, vertigo and imbalance at the CMH Rehab & Exercise Therapy Center.
