Reina Williams, Island Doctors' Community Liaison, was recently published in the St. Augustine Women’s Journal! If you experience balance problems such as swaying, dizziness, or vertigo, there may be a more serious underlying cause. Balance problems can prevent you from performing daily activities and you should speak to a physician if you suspect you may have a balance problem. Take necessary steps to prevent a sudden loss of balance, especially in the bathroom/bathtub. Avoid a sedentary lifestyle to keep your muscles active. Report any falls to your physician and remain calm, we can help.
