BALANCE THERAPY AT THE SHOOK REHABILITATION & WELLNESS CENTER
|Balance is central to our daily lives. Every time we sit, rise, and walk, our muscles and joints should work in synchronization to maintain equilibrium.|
When balance is compromised, quality of life deteriorates. Fall risk increases. Job performance suffers. Fear of taking a tumble keeps us pinned to a chair, unable to visit friends or attempt exercise. Inactivity perpetuates in a vicious circle, leading to ever-worsening health outcomes.
The Shook Rehabilitation & Wellness Center applies state-of-the-art technology to correcting imbalance and its consequences. Our HUR iBalance machine offers the latest in balance restoration techniques in a safe, user-friendly manner.
