BPPV is Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo and is one of the most common causes of vertigo, the sudden sensation that you’re spinning or that the inside of your head is spinning. BPPV causes brief episodes of mild to intense dizziness. It is usually triggered by specific changes in your head’s position. https://promotionrehabnc.blogspot.com/2020/06/dizziness-and-balance-challenges.html
ASTYM / IASTM is a treatment that regenerates healthy soft tissue and eliminates or reduces unwanted scar tissue that may be causing pain or movement restrictions. www.promotionrehab.com/iastm-therapy
ETPS combines the principles of acupuncture & neurology with microcurrent stimulation. ETPS successfully helps people control their pain levels and resume normal functioning in their lives again. www.promotionrehab.com/microcurrent-point-stimulation-mps
LSVT BIG trains people with Parkinson disease (PD) to use their body more normally. People living with PD or other neurological conditions often move differently, with gestures and actions that become smaller and slower. LSVT BIG can produce significant improvements even for people facing considerable physical difficulties. www.promotionrehab.com/lsvt-big-parkinsons-disease
