Marquette, MI – September 17, 2021 – September 19-25, 2021 is Balance Awareness Week and Active Physical Therapy’s Jeanette Tousignant joined Mark & Walt in the Morning today to talk about it as well as issues with balance.
Tousignant, a Physical Therapist with Active Physical Therapy, discussed how the week puts a focus on vestibular issues that can affect your balance daily.
She explained that the vestibular system in the body is what takes in and processes all of the sensory information from our eyes, ears and muscle and joint systems and allows us to maintain our balance.
Any issues with that system will affect balance in people of all ages, and Tousignant said there are good options available through working with your physician and a physical therapist if you suspect something my be wrong.
Tousignant said Balance Awareness Week is a good opportunity to take time to learn about tips to identify, manage and overcome balance issues.
