Calvert Focuses on Vestibular Rehab
For the month of January, Calvert Home Health Care will be focusing on the Vestibular Rehab Therapy, VRT, Program. VRT is a specific form of physical therapy that uses specialized exercises to treat balance disorders. Most VRT exercises involve head movement, and head movements are essential in stimulating and retraining the vestibular system. VRT can help with a variety of acute or abrupt vestibular problems.
VRT is needed because dizziness is experienced by 90 million or 42% of Americans. Some patients develop permanent balance deficits with subsequent functional limitations. For patients over 75 years of age, dizziness is a significant fall risk factor. Falls in the elderly account for 50% of accidental deaths and 10% result in hospitalizations.
For more information on this program or other programs that Calvert Home Health Care, Ltd. has to offer, please talk to your doctor or call (806) 747-8972.
