May 18th - Vestibular Rehabilitation
Dr. Morgan Fry (PhD in Physical Therapy) will be talking about vertigo, balance issues or dizziness, symptoms which often accompany hearing loss. He has had success in treating balance disorders through physical therapy, with his extensive training in vestibular rehabilitation. Dr. Fry joined Albuquerque Hearing and Balance in September 2018. He got his Bachelor’s degree in exercise and sports science in 2010 from the University of Utah, then his Doctorate of Physical Therapy from the University of the Pacific. He entered the niche of vestibular and balance re- habilitation recently when he developed and started a vestibular rehab clinic in Santa Fe. This specialty has been immensely rewarding, as he gets to see people get back to their lives that they thought were lost in the dizziness.
Our "Resources" page has a wide variety of information ranging from Guidelines for Purchasing Hearing Aids to Medicines That Can Effect Your Hearing.
