Keep Your Balance (Cooperman Barnabas)

More than 1.6 million older adults in the United States go to emergency departments for fall-related injuries each year. Among older adults, falls are the leading cause of fractures, hospital admissions for trauma, loss of independence and deaths due to injury. Younger adults are also at risk, especially if there are physical problems that tend to disrupt balance.

To address balance issues and help people avoid falls, the Balance Center at Cooperman Barnabas Medical Center is holding a free educational program designed for those who experience:

  • lightheadedness
  • dizziness (one type of which is also referred to as vertigo)
  • ongoing nausea
  • falling and stumbling
  • other balance-related problems

The program will also address sleep issues often experienced by those with dizziness and imbalance and include a blood pressure screening.

The Balance Center coordinates care among a multidisciplinary team of medical experts, including otolaryngologists, physical therapists, audiologists and vestibular diagnostic technicians, who offer diagnosis and targeted treatment recommendations such as balance training, vestibular rehabilitation, therapeutic exercise and fall prevention strategies.

Light refreshments will be served. While this program is free, advanced registration is required. You may also call 1.888.724.7123.
