Goodlife Physical Therapy Dizzy & Balance Center
Hi, my name is Mickey Shah and I’m joining the Vestibular Disorders Association (VEDA) to help raise awareness about the challenges of dealing with a vestibular disorder.
As a physical therapist, I have treated several patients suffering from vestibular disorders, each having a different journey. Please join me to bring awareness to this disorder for all those who suffer with it everyday! Thank you so much for joining me and bringing awareness to vestibular disorders!! No donation is too small and your support is really appreciated. Thank you!! What is the vestibular system? The vestibular system includes the parts of the inner ear and brain that process the sensory information involved with controlling balance and eye movements. What causes a vestibular disorder and what are the affects? If disease or injury damages these processing areas, vestibular disorders can result. Common symptoms of a vestibular disorder include dizziness, vertigo and disequilibrium. Affects can include the ability to perform the basic activities such as bathing, dressing, and eating. Children with vestibular disorders can face impairments of motor development and balance and learning challenges at school. Who suffers from vestibular disorders? People of all ages, races, backgrounds, ethnicities and gender are affected. An estimated 35.4% of US adults aged 40 years and older (109 million Americans) experience vestibular dysfunction at some point in their lives. I’m asking you to join me to support VEDA because as a physical therapist I have seen firsthand how devastating these disorders can be both physically and emotionally. VEDA plays a critical role in helping people understand their symptoms, connect them with qualified medical specialists, and provide a support network so they are not suffering alone. My personal goal is to raise 1000.00. Your support will help. Your donation will help me raise awareness about vestibular disorders. Not only will you help me achieve my goal, you’ll also help the Vestibular Disorders Association make important advances for patients. Thank you for your support. Together we will make a difference!
