Purchasing Balance Exercises Online

Yesterday we had a woman who called us and asked if we would suggest any particular balance exercises to buy from an online source. She had found some online for $59.99 and wanted our opinion.

Our answer was: Go see a licensed healthcare professional who deals with vestibular disorders!

The reason vestibular rehabilitation and balance therapy works is because a trained professional is watching you and making sure you are doing these exercises correctly. These therapists and doctors are educated  in teaching how these exercises re-train your brain and vestibular system. Even slight changes the therapist makes can make a big difference in your recovery.

So check with your healthcare professional and you’ll be back to doing things you have been wanting to do!
