Balance Awareness Week Sept. 15 – 21

We all know that our balance and general movements are taken for granted. We have been walking, running and moving before we could actually think – and so our movements are as natural to us as breathing. We move and breathe without even thinking about it. Well for those that have dizziness, movement disorders and vertigo, moving can be very frightening and upsetting. And seeing an expert who can provide tools to manage and cope with movement disorders is important.

We are Arroyo Physical Therapy are proud to be a part of VEDA Balance Awareness week and are offering FREE Fall and balance screenings (by appointment) for the month of September. If you know of anyone needing our services, a referral is your best compliment.
