HSHS St. Anthony’s Memorial Hospital to offer free balance screening

(EFFINGHAM, IL) – Do you experience loss of balance, unsteadiness, dizziness or frequent falls?

HSHS St. Anthony’s Memorial Hospital’s Physical Rehabilitation Department is holding a Balance Clinic on July 17.   A physical therapist will provide a simple 15-20 minute balance screening and fall risk assessment free of charge.

Following the simple screening, the therapist will share results with each patient and provide recommendations based on screening results.  The therapist will encourage patients to schedule an appointment with their physician to discuss results and any recommendations for balance or vestibular evaluation and therapy.  Patients will also receive information on fall prevention and home safety.

A physician’s order is not required for the screening and patients do not have to register with the hospital.  However, screenings are being conducted by appointment only.  Appointment times are available between 9 – 11 a.m.  Call (217) 347-1243 to schedule an appointment.
