Mason De Keyrel in National Dizzy and Balance Commercial
National Dizzy and Balance Center (NDBC) is a unique outpatient clinic system. They combine Physicians, Audiologists, and Physical Therapists all within the same facility to offer a true multidisciplinary approach to dizziness, balance disorders, and concussions. This multi-discplinary approach to patient care is what makes their clinics so unique for the treatment of balance disorders.
In the National Dizzy and Balance commercial they had me as a patient to show all the steps they do for concussions, balance disorders and dizziness. They started off with a shot where I was doing a step ladder and doing different exercises.
The next shot we did, was a machine that shows what foot you put more weight on when your standing and also shows your balance. First you start off with the wall in front of you moving, if you put pressure on your heels or toes, so you want to be as still as possible so the wall doesn’t move. Next on the same machine, but the floor moves and you want to stay as still as possible, but the floor under your feet moves, so it is hard. After that, they do it with the wall moving and the floor moving, so when you put pressure on you heels or toes the floor moves and so does the wall. They also did a test where they make you walk down a hall and look up and down and side to side. As you walk, they look to see if you stumble. After that, a doctor looks in your eyes with a light to make sure there is nothing wrong. The doctor also makes you follow his finger as he moves it up and down and side to side. Then he starts with his finger far away and comes close to your face, if you start seeing two of his finger you tell him.
Thank you to National Dizzy and Balance Center for including me in the commercial. It was a great experience and I now have a new found appreciation for what all goes into making a commercial.
