center. After the recent tornado experience in this area, you may have some questions or
concerns that you never had before and can ask Chief Ashworth.

severe weather emergencies.

Vertigo & Dizziness
Do you get dizzy when you get in or out of bed?  Do you avoid making quick turns?  Does it ever
feel like your body might not stop when you bend forward?  How is your balance? Sarah Conover,
PT, MHS, CLCP will be presenting an informative and practical talk on dizziness.
Dizziness and vertigo can be caused by a variety of conditions, many of which can be treated.
This presentation will cover the common causes of dizziness, how to identify something that might
be an emergency, an overview of the treatments available for dizziness and balance conditions,
and what you can expect from treatment.
Sarah is a certified specialist in vestibular rehabilitation.  In her practice at Xcel Spots Medicine
she sees almost exclusively those with balance and dizziness problems as well as those with post-
concussion symptoms. She works very closely with the regional ENTs, including those at UC and
OSU, and many local physicians to provide care for many types of inner ear and brain conditions
causing these troubling symptoms.  
Sarah received her physical therapy degree from the University of Evansville and her Masters in
Health Sciences from the University of Indianapolis. Sarah’s early professional years involved
rehabilitation of a variety of types of neurological conditions such as stroke, Parkinson’s, brain
injury, and spinal cord injury in various settings.
She facilitates a free, monthly vestibular support group open to anyone with a vestibular
condition. For more information on this you may contact Sarah Conover at 937-890-9235 or at
