Dizziness and balance disorders can affect individuals of all ages and significantly impact function and mobility. Many describe the sensation of dizziness or lack of balance, which can be symptoms of change in the vestibular system. If untreated, balance disorders can lead to injurious falls.
At Benton Physical Therapy, we can help reduce your ergonomic risk factors by analyzing the postures and movements that you use during your work activities, as well as analyzing your body and it’s ability to perform the tasks.

We may identify risks within your job such as awkward postures and make suggestions for improvement.
