Geneva, New York
Born and raised in Geneva, NY. Denise Parks married and started a family. Now at 61, she discovered that she was having unusual balance problems. Denise would find herself randomly falling for no reason, luckily, these falls never resulted in serious injury, but they certainly could have.
Denise was living in a consistent state of unsteadiness, feeling uneasy and unsure. She felt much more comfortable staying put; getting up and moving around was too risky for her.
“It was best that I stay out of my own shadow so that I wouldn’t trip over it.
After Denise tried to balance herself by walking in new shoes and with a cane, she hoped that they would provide her with more support…nothing seemed to help. Denise realized that it was now time to seek professional care. Denise was referred to Limitless by her ENT doctor, and scheduled an appointment with Lindsey, our balance and vestibular specialist.
Dr. Lindsey began testing her balance, eye function, strength, sensation, and inner ear function to reveal the root of Denise’s problem. After the tests were completed, Dr. Lindsey came to the conclusion that Denise was having vestibular, or inner ear difficulties. Lindsey immediately established a plan of care to get Denise back on her feet and back to living without fear of falling. Denise’s sessions focused on balance, strengthening and vestibular functions.
“Dr. Lindsey and the Team at Limitless helped me gain my confidence back, I can now walk without being fearful of falling.”
The treatments that were chosen for Denise’s plan of care were tailored to her specific needs, Denise is now walking with ease, and her balance is steady and strong. Her balance and inner ear difficulties are no longer, Denise is now back to living her life without limitations.
