FYZICAL for Dizziness & Fall Prevention in Easley, SC
Our FYZICAL clinic is one of over 250 across the United States. It is known for its standardization on treatment protocols based on research and clinical studies to give our patients the best and the fastest recovery for balance and dizziness. Our therapist has been trained in all the available educational courses, so we are considered to be a Balance Level III center! What does this mean? Vestibular therapy is our specialty. Whether it's BPPV's, post-concussion, migraine or age-related dizziness, Meniere's or other inner ear disorders, this is the place to be. Motion sickness or nausea, fear of falling, vertigo, unsteadiness/wobbliness, and balance difficulty due to neuropathy or any reason are common symptoms of our patients who come here. What do we do differently? Based on standardized testing, we know the best process to progress our patients, focusing not just on their feet/legs/core, but on their eyes and their inner ear (Vestibular System) as well. Our exercises are usually very simple and yet very effective. As one patient recently said, "I don't know why it's working, but it is!"
Our clinic is located in our ENT office, Easley Head & Neck Surgery. All patients who present with dizziness must first see our physician or physician's assistant prior to PT to rule out medical issues, for proper diagnosis, and to prep our patients for the appropriate testing so we can get a full understanding of the presentation of symptoms.
Our FYZICAL location has an a Safety Overhead Support, which is on a tracking system in the ceiling (able to hold up to 650 lbs.) throughout most of the gym to maximize safety with any walking or balance activity, so our patients do not ever have be afraid of falling. This is the perfect set-up to allow us to treat not only balance and dizziness, but also strokes, Parkinson's, MS, amputations, falls, fear of falling, or just generalized weakness or functional decline which occurs with age or activity level. We have had up-to-date training in Concussion Rehab, as evidence-based research has changed dramatically in the last few years.
We have the only objectively-measured Computerized Dynamic Posturography (CDP) in the upstate (possibly all of SC). It originated to assess balance of our astronauts before and after their trip to outer space! The results are calculated and help us understand how our patient uses each of their sensory systems (eys, ears, feet) to keep their balance. We begin and progress exercises based on these results. We are also able to do some exercises right in this machine that can be very effective for nausea or motion sickness.
We also have a Videonystagmography (VNG) machine, which helps us if the motor control of your eyes are contributing or causing dizziness. It also helps identify BPPV's and where they are, and let's us know how your vestibular system (balance system in your inner ear) is working. This is an awesome resource for physical therapy, but is considered to be an otolaryngology test, so it can only be done after a visit with the ENT.
It is very helpful to determine if a BPPV is present and, if it is, which of the 6 canals it is in, which is critical to know in order to get rid of it.
What else makes us unique? We spend time with our patient with individual 1-on-1 treatment session for each visit, so our patients get the focus and attention they deserve.
A Note From Our Physical Therapist
My name is Sheri St. Clair, and I have been the FYZICAL Therapist at this location for 2 1/2 years. I have been a Physical Therapist for 27 years and have worked in a wide variety of settings, treating many different ailments and disabilities. I have worked in the hospital/rehabilitation setting, home care, and out-patient. I've spent years in orthopedics, years working with neuro/stroke/Parkinson's, and years of balance and vestibular work. I have been certified at the highest training level to treat all BPPV's (inner-ear crystals) as well as any dizziness-related issue, including motion sickness. FYZICAL's Therapy & Balance Centers are the experts in the nation for this, and we follow their program/paradigm to get patients to feel steadier on their feet, safer and more confident in their lives. I love treating neuro & stroke patients, and I love working with the senior community! I specialize in anything dizzy or balance-related, and have the technology in this office to support my skills. Treating dizziness is considered highly specialized in the field of physical therapy, and I work with patients to be able to manage it or to get rid of it. I love to see the attitudes of hope and encouragement build up as my patients learn that, if they are consistent with the program, their feelings of unsuredness can really turn around to become feelings of confidence, well being, and hope! I am proud to work here, being able to provide the rehab that no other local physical therapy center can provide!
