American Hearing & Balance Offers Expanded Tinnitus Therapy Options

Glendale, CA (PRWEB) May 05, 2015

Tinnitus is defined as the perception of sound where no outside source is found to exist. People affected often summarize the sound as a continual ringing, hissing, roaring, buzzing, or whooshing noise that is perceived either continuously or intermittently.

As reported by the American Tinnitus Association, tinnitus affects a projected 50 million Americans, with an additional 30 million workers at risk for developing the condition together with noise-induced hearing loss. The chronic sound of tinnitus impairs cognitive function, attention, and overall quality of life for those affected.

The good news is, while not all cases of tinnitus can be cured or alleviated, modern-day improvements in tinnitus therapy can provide much-needed and substantial relief for those afflicted with the condition.

The hearing specialists at American Hearing & Balance have developed expertise in the latest tinnitus treatments and are now offering these services to those in California. Contrary to popular belief, several tinnitus therapy alternatives exist that are generally very effective. A hearing specialist can work with individuals to find the best option for each individual case.

Treatment options include:

Treatment of an underlying medical condition, such as a blood vessel condition, can cure or alleviate tinnitus.
Hearing aids can generate the dual benefits of improving hearing and masking the tinnitus. This therapy is especially effective in those with untreated hearing loss that is causing the tinnitus.
Drug therapy, while unable to cure tinnitus, can create relief in certain circumstances with specific medications.
Sound therapy produces white noise that can mask the tinnitus, making it less bothersome. Various devices can provide sound therapy, and a hearing specialist can help patients select the best one.

Fighting Falls Balance and Stability Program Thriving at Cape Cod Rehab Physical Therapy & Fitness

Mashpee, MA (PRWEB) January 23, 2015

According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, 1 out of 3 adults (aged 65 and older) falls every year. Physical activity is a major factor in keeping good health and maintaining independence through the aging process. Fighting Falls, a balance and stability program at Cape Cod Rehab Physical Therapy & Fitness, was designed to develop balance, coordination, flexibility, and strength to reduce the risk of falls and improve activities of daily living.

The four week Fighting Falls program begins with baseline testing and discussions of risk factors followed by exercises targeting balance and posture. The number of participants in each group is limited to provide more individualized attention for each member.

Mashpee Fitness Center member, Marcia Thompson, was extremely happy to go through the Fighting Falls program. “[The instructor] Alan Harrison did an excellent job of tailoring exercises to each individual so that there was a sense of accomplishment no matter the level of achievement.”

Another participant, Ina Schlobohm, said, “Our instructor was thorough in his explanations of the relevance of the exercises we were doing and was patient with all of our questions. I am certainly going to continue with the exercises prescribed, in the hope that things don’t deteriorate but maintain status quo and perhaps even improve.”

Part of the Mission of Cape Cod Rehab is to help people improve their performance in everyday activities, sports and recreation. The number of individuals who incur a fall is at a staggering high (over 2.5 million in 2013) therefore the Fighting Falls program was born.

Joe Carroll PT DPT SCS, owner of Cape Cod Rehab, had this to say; “This past year we lost my mother due to complications that developed after a fall that fractured her hip and humerus. I’ve decided to put greater resources into our Fighting Falls program with the goal of preventing these devastating injuries and maintaining healthy lives.”

Cape Cod Rehab is taking a pro-active approach to try to identify those who may be at risk or those who may have had an injury that has weakened them, making them a greater fall risk. There is quite a bit of ongoing research on studying not only the causes of falls, but also what types of interventions can help those at risk for falls.

Carroll has invested in the HUMAC Balance System and placed one of these high tech devices in each of Cape Cod Rehab’s three locations. Rob Potash, Vice President of CSMi, the company that developed the HUMAC Balance System stated, “HUMAC Balance was developed for physical therapists to address the rising increase and cost of senior falls. Every 17 seconds, an older adult will go to the ER due to a fall related injury.”

The device uses force plates and biofeedback for testing to measure a person’s ability to balance themselves under different standardized protocols. Potash continued to say, “The most effective single fall prevention intervention is exercise, but first one needs to identify the weakness to prescribe the appropriate training.”

Physical Therapists and trainers are then able to use the data gathered with the HUMAC Balance System to develop a treatment program of strengthening and balance exercises. Results are stored and each training session is able to give feedback to track progress.

Last month Cape Cod Rehab formed a HUMAC Balance Team with representatives from each of its 3 locations. The team’s focus is on research, analyzing data from the program and looking into ways to constantly improve Fighting Falls.

Thompson added, “In the long run, teaching good balance is a win/win class for both the participants and the rest of the population at large. Being aware of balance and working to improve it has to be one of the most important aspects of life seniors can work on.”

Locally owned and operated for over 25 years, Cape Cod Rehab specializes in the Burdenko Method, Orthopedic and Sports Injury Physical Therapy, medical exercise prescription, along with the conditioning and training of athletes. With locations in Mashpee, Hyannis, and Osterville, their motto is “Getting you back on your feet and into the game!” For more information visit

New Acupuncture Treatment for Eye Conditions Offered at Natures Balance

Crystal Lake, IL (PRWEB) January 07, 2015

Janine Jozwiak, of Nature’s Balance Acupuncture in Crystal Lake IL, is now offering Boel Acunova Acupuncture Treatments for many common eye ailments. Jozwiak is now one of the few American practitioners who use the method, which was developed by John Boel of Denmark. This treatment has been used on over 8000 eye patients and boasts a success rate over 70%.

The Boel Acunova Acupuncture Treatments involve eye acupuncture points in the hands and feet that are not associated with any other acupuncture system. Two additional points used are located in the eyebrows, which, studies show, increase blood circulation to the retina in the eye. The Acunova program involves a minimum of 10 days of treatments over a two-week period, and each treatment lasts about one hour. Herbs and supplements, along with a recommended diet and exercise regimen, may be included as part of the treatment.

According to Jozwiak, “Many vision conditions respond to treatment with acupuncture. Treatment is focused on identifying the root cause affecting your vision and improving these underlying conditions. The goal is to improve vision, slow the progress of your condition, and maintain eye health.” Among the conditions which may be effectively treated are Age-Related Macular Degeneration, Retinitis Pigmentosa, Glaucoma, Stargardt’s Disease, Diabetic Retinopathy, and others.

A vision test is performed at the beginning of treatment to assess current vision, and another is done after the initial round of treatments. By comparing the two tests, it can not only be determined if the patient is a responder or a non-responder, but the efficacy of the treatment can be immediately quantified.

Once the initial course of treatment has been completed and the patient has recovered as much lost vision as possible, focus turns towards retaining the gains made through maintenance treatments. Degenerative conditions require ongoing maintenance and will only get worse if neglected. The frequency of these maintenance visits vary depending upon the patient’s specific health conditions. Most patients return for treatments more frequently during the first year, and then continue with maintenance treatments. Additional information on these, and other treatments offered at Nature’s Balance by contacting Janine Jozwiak.
