Seminar addresses dizziness
Liz Briere of the Kingman Regional Medical Center Physical Therapy Department will discuss "Managing Dizziness and Balance Disorders" when KRMC hosts Lunch and Learn starting at noon Dec. 19 in the Del E. Webb Wellness Center, 1719 E. Beverly.
Dizziness and balance disorders are very common and affect one out of three people.
If you feel dizzy or unsteady, it can affect your ability to carry out even the most minor tasks, such as walking or driving.
Balance problems are also a leading cause of falls. Balance-related falls account for one-half of accidental deaths in the population over age 65.
If you experience a persistent sense of dizziness or imbalance, it's important to tell your doctor. Usually, these symptoms will not go away by themselves and will continue to affect your quality of life.
Lunch and Learn seminars are free. Participants bring their own lunches and KRMC provides beverages and dessert.
To ensure enough seating and desserts, please contact KRMC's Public Relations Department at 681-8514 to make a reservation.
