    Name: Free Health Seminar - Bodies In Balance: Dizziness and Vertigo
    Date: August 24, 2018
    Time: 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM CDT
    Event Description:
    Sacred Heart Hospital on the Emerald Coast will host a free health seminar featuring Leslie Moskal, Doctor of Physical Therapy and Mary Kay Cattaneo, Director of Rehabilitation Services for Sacred Heart Hospital, on Friday, Aug. 24 at 11a.m.

    Join us for this free community seminar to learn about the distinct types of dizziness, what causes it, prevention methods as well as medications and treatment options. Dizziness, vertigo and postural hypotension are common in older adults and have numerous causes. Moskal will discuss the diagnostic process and distinguishing between otologic, central, medical, and psychogenic causes. The use of vestibular physical therapy is often helpful and will be explored as a treatment option.

    “Medications must be used with greater caution in older adults,” said Moskal.  “They may be more sensitive to side effects, like dizziness.”

    Mary Kay Cattaneo will share information on the Bodies in Balance Fall Prevention Program available at Sacred Heart and our Wellness Program offering aquatic, strengthening and balance classes offered at Sacred Heart Rehabilitation at Somerby Assisted Living in Santa Rosa Beach.
