The two owner/operators of Hear & Spin, Barney Mitcham and Sagit Cohen came along to talk about Vestibular Rehabilitation. Barney is an Audiometrist and a Physiotherapist, and he and Sagit provide services that deal with hearing and dizziness problems. We take balance and co-ordination for granted, but dizziness is a common problem. The interaction between our eyes, our muscles and joints, and our inner ear balance system provides our brain with information which facilitates balance, and one of the most common causes of dizziness is the movement of crystals from their correct position in the inner ear to the adjacent fluid canals. However there is a treatment to address this benign paroxysmal positional vertigo, namely the Epley Manoeuvre which moves the particles in the inner ear back to their correct location. Ageing inevitably takes its toll, but the adverse effects can be slowed by engaging in activities as simple as regular walking. People with mild hearing loss are three times more likely to have a fall, and Barney listed a number of things to minimise dizziness problems: get your hearing checked regularly; use good quality footwear; take regular exercise; enjoy a healthy diet; reduce stress as much as possible; don’t use cotton buds; and seek medical advice sooner rather than later. Another most informative session.
