HMH rehabilitation services offers new program for dizziness

Harrison Memorial Hospital (HMH) announces a new service for individuals who experience dizziness or balance disorder. Vestibular rehabilitation therapy (VRT) is an exercise-based program designed to promote central nervous system compensation for inner ear deficits. The therapy program will treat patients suffering from imbalance issues such as positional vertigo and Meniere’s disease.

“Patients come to me all the time with a spinning sensation in their head, having trouble maintaining their balance or just vague symptoms of disequilibrium,” said Dr. Dan Mongiardo, HMH ear, nose and throat physician. “The first thing I do is diagnose what’s causing the symptoms, whether it is diabetes, inner ear issues or even a cardiac or neurological issue. Then, we can begin to treat that patient properly.”
