Treatment Programs to Help People
with Dizziness, Balance Problems, Motion Sickness
HealthReach Rehab's Balance, Dizziness and Motion Sickness Program helps adults and children in the Milwaukee area and elsewhere in Wisconsin align the three components of balance: eyes, musculoskeletal system and inner ears.
When those three systems are not in sync, balance problems can cause major disruptions in daily life, including risk of falling, shortened attention spans, abnormal sleep and excessive fatigue.
