Where do you end a blog about a fellow co-worker.
I know exactly where ... my friend ... WIN Physiotherapist, Jennifer Lepere!
Have you ever gone to lie down and the room starts spinning? Have you tried to get your teeth cleaned at the dentist or hair washed at the hair dresser but you can't because you feel dizzy or feel the room spinning? Have you ever felt dizzy, unsteady or off balance? Do you experience motion sickness while doing seemingly easy tasks? Have you ever been told you have vertigo?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, you may have a problem with your vestibular system. The vestibular system gives us our sense of balance and spatial orientation and helps to coordinate muscles and eye control to help keep us balance and upright.
At WIN health Solutions, our physiotherapist Jennifer Lepere PT, DPT is offering a unique individualized vestibular rehab program to help restore proper vestibular function. You can expect a comprehensive exam of your semicircular canals, eye movement and coordination, and also posture control and balance testing. You will be given a specific individualized exercise program that can be done in the clinic and also at home.
If you or anyone you know is experiencing dysfunction in their vestibular system please have them call WIN Health Solutions to start them on the path to a less dizzy, and more balanced future.
