FYZICAL North Fort Myers & Audiology CenterFYZICAL Therapy & Balance Centers celebrated the one-year anniversary of its clinic in North Fort Myers by unveiling a new state-of-the-art Audiology Center.

The Audiology Center features an experienced team capable of identifying, diagnosing and treating all types of hearing disorders, including hearing loss caused by exposure to loud noises, illness and injury. Audiology joins a growing list of services available at FYZICAL North Fort Myers, including orthopedic rehabilitation, balance therapy, fitness and wellness, neurological rehabilitation and more.

Nationally, it’s estimated that one in four adults between 65 and 74 years old have disabling hearing loss. Nearly half of seniors 75 and older have experienced hearing loss.

“Audiology is a critically important specialty given our demographics in Southwest Florida,” said Dr. Virginia Reed, PT, DPT, CMPT, and FYZICAL’s Regional Director for Southwest Florida. “Hearing loss doesn’t just affect the words and sounds we hear; it also can affect your vestibular system, which is a main contributor to balance. Having an audiologist and physical therapist working collaboratively to develop a treatment plan leads to positive outcomes for patients.”

At the anniversary celebration held on Nov. 30, local physicians and medical professionals enjoyed clinic tours, meeting FYZICAL staff, a cocktail hour hosted by Bubbly Bee and small bites provided by Chicken Salad Chick.
