Contrary to popular beliefs, loss of balance and mobility are not inevitable as we grow older. Eighty percent of patients that have dizziness and balance disorders can be helped, even cured. Whatever the cause of dizziness and imbalance, it is not something you or your loved ones have to live with.
Located in the Rehab Gym at Peace River Regional, the Center for Balance Disorders offers a unique, comprehensive service to diagnose and treat dizziness, vertigo and disequilibrium. Utilizing brand new, state-of-the-art diagnosis and treatment technology, Peace River has a team of Licensed Physical Therapists specifically trained to deal with dizziness and balance disorders that look beyond traditional clinical approaches to detect and actively treat these disorders.
The Peace River Regional Center for Balance Disorders uses the same breakthrough technology as NASA, technology originally created to diagnose and treat the cause of dizziness and loss of balance in astronauts upon their return from shuttle missions.
