FYZICAL Safety Overhead System SOS

Our centers are equipped with the latest technologies in order to better determine the cause of the imbalance which allows us to determine the fastest, most effective road to recovery. Our OVERHEAD SUPPORT SYSTEMS maximize the SAFETY throughout the recovery process.

“There is no role for chronic treatment of dizziness or vertigo with Meclizine, Scopolamine, or other Antihistamine or Anticholinergic medications. These are appropriately used acutely in the first days to a week after a vestibular crisis, and on a daily basis only when significant nausea or spontaneous spells of vertigo are expected like Meniere’s disease. Patients may wish to keep some on hand as “security,” but habitual use of these agents generally is not helpful and may be counterproductive to the central compensation process.”

The human body is made to move. National Physical Therapy Month in October recognizes the work physical therapists do in their communities to not only get people back on their feet, but also to stay on their feet.

National Physical Therapy Month

The American Physical Therapy Association and FYZICAL Therapy & Balance Centers agree that physical therapy offers a variety of benefits:

  • Working with a physical therapist improves everyday mobility and motion. Consistent movement prevents obesity, heart attack, stroke, hip fractures and knee arthritis in addition to preventing life-threatening falls.
  • A physical therapist will establish appropriate and effective programs allowing for the management of chronic conditions and in turn helping to minimize the need for prescription drugs.
  • Treatment plans allow patients to participate in their own recovery. With individualized treatment plans, patients are empowered to reach their recovery goals as well as maintain optimum health their entire lives.
  • Through a comprehensive physical evaluation, a trained physical therapist can identify compromises to the body that can lead to major issues later in life. Proactive early detection allows for conditions to be addressed by the individual client along with their physical therapist before developing into larger, potentially life-threatening issues.
