People who suffer from dizziness or loss of balance can benefit from specialized physical therapy. Mar specializes in vestibular issues and balance. Vestibular physical therapy can help alleviate and treat various types of dizziness, such as vertigo, disequilibrium, rocking and/or unsteadiness.
Mar will discuss different types of dizziness, common causes, as well as how vestibular physical therapy can treat these issues. People are often told by other healthcare professionals that nothing can be done for their dizziness, but Complete Balance Solutions has a passion for educating the community on how this can change.
Mar received her doctorate in physical therapy from Chapman University and furthered her education by attending advanced vestibular courses from the University of Pittsburg. She is certified in LSVT BIG to better treat patients with Parkinson’s sisease. She enjoys working with patients with neurological disorders and has experience working within sports/orthopedics and acute rehabilitation physical on therapy.
Mar’s research, “Application of Low Budget Virtual Reality Goggles to Improve Cervical Range of Motion in Older Adults” was accepted at the national 2018 APTA NEXT Conference The Sunshine Club will continue meeting via Zoom this month. The club will re-evaluate at the end of the month to decide whether to continue meetings online or to switch to in-person.
