At Excel Physical Therapy in Lodi, CA, we know that more than 40 percent of Americans will experience dizziness or vertigo that is serious enough for them to seek medical attention. The statistics are not encouraging.
More than one half of the accidental deaths in the elderly are generated by balance related falls
More than 250,000 hip fractures a year are caused by balance related falls
More than 90 million of US population will be affected by poor balance
Dizziness and loss of balance is the number one complain in older patients
But there is hope…
According to John Hopkins research, 85% of all forms of loss of balance and dizziness can be helped once a proper diagnosis is obtained.
Sometimes the patients visit three-four physicians and undergo multiple tests until they are finally seen in our clinic. We don’t underestimate the importance of prevention testing but a short visit to our office will help you faster identify your problem.
