Heartfelt Thanks for the New McLean

My Mom, Theresa Cascio came to the New McLean with a lot of history, hopes and fears.  She  had told me often that she didn’t like to be around “old people” and she certainly did not  consider herself to be an old person even if she did have white hair.  She had always been a very independent woman and her stroke left her fighting against the limitations of her own body.

Do you or someone you know suffer from dizziness, loss of balance or unsteadiness, sensitivity to head movements or falls? If so, you may be suffering from Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV), a disorder of the vestibular system which affects the alignment of the calcium crystals in the inner ear. These crystals can be dislodged due to an injury to the head, aging, infection or viruses, long term use or high doses of certain antibiotics, whiplash or other causes. 

According to the National Institutes of Health, more than 90 million people experience dizziness or a balance problem. 85% of those problems are a result of pathology within the inner ear. Balance related falls account for more than half of the accidental falls in the elderly population.
