There’s a number of different rehab professionals that are vestibular specialists. These are the main specialists in our main central balance system, basically handling dizziness and vertigo disorders. But they’re also very, very specialized in balance training because they’re specialists of the main central balance system of the human body.
You can go to a vestibular specialist, or just go to a physical therapist in general. This is a good place to start. Of course, generalized balance training, as I tend to call it, is a good place to start. It may not get you everything that you need, but it’s a good place to start. It’s certainly better than not doing anything, and it’s better than just walking.
So, going and getting the help that you need is very, very important. You want to act now. You don’t want to wait until you see signs of a balance problem because by then it might be too late. The earlier that you start, the more you exercise and stimulate your balance system, and avoid the decline of your balance as soon as possible, the less costly it’s going to be, the less time it’s going to take to work on it, and of course, the less likely you are to end up in the hospital and end up in a nursing home.
Because once you start that downhill decline, it can be more difficult to climb up out of that. You want to act proactively before something catastrophic happens, and it’s amazing how quickly something catastrophic can happen.
