- Each year, 3 million older people are treated in emergency departments for fall injuries.3
- Over 800,000 patients a year are hospitalized because of a fall injury, most often because of a head injury or hip fracture.3

I was being treated for another condition at Evolve Physical Therapy when I awoke one morning with dizziness that I happen to mention to my therapist. He assessed me and treated me that day and within minutes my dizziness was taken care off. It was amazing how quickly it went away!
I was having trouble with my balance and having dizziness with getting out of bed and when I stood up. I went to see Matt Whitaker and he provided a single treatment that actually took away the dizziness - it was painless! I am so pleased he is able to provide this care!
For years when I laid down to sleep and when I got up the world would spin for 15-20 seconds. When I came to see Matt for lower back pain I sat up and as usual I was really dizzy. Within a few treatments Matt was able to get the dizziness to go away completely! I had seen my medical doctor who did not have a solution and I basically dealt with it as a "normal" part of my life. After his treatment, I can now lay down and sit up without the world spinning! Thank you Matt!
