Have you ever felt that the environment was moving around you when it was still, or that your body was in motion when you were in fact stationary? This feeling is the description of vertigo, a commonly diagnosed vestibular disorder.
The vestibular system includes the parts of the inner ear and brain that process the sensory information involved with controlling balance and eye movements. If disease or injury damages these processing areas, vestibular disorders, like vertigo, can result. Vestibular disorders can also result from or be worsened by genetic or environmental conditions, or occur for unknown reasons.
Fortunately, there is help for vertigo. Attend RiverView Health’s Tuesday, Feb. 28th health luncheon to hear RiverView Physical Therapist Lindsey Ebertowski explain the pathologies that cause vertigo and potential treatments of the disorder.
The luncheon will be held in Meeting Room #1 of RiverView Health, 323 S. Minnesota Street, beginning at noon. Meeting Room #1 is located near the RiverView Clinic entrance on the north side of the building and across from the elevators on first floor.
The luncheon series is in its 19th year of sponsorship by RiverView Health. All men and women interested in improving their health are invited to attend. Each luncheon starts a few minutes past noon and luncheons are kept under one hour so those needing to return to work can attend. Pre-registration is required. A boxed lunch can be purchased for $3, but must be ordered while pre-registering for the event. Call Holly Anderson at 218-281-9745 for additional information and to pre-register.
