Member Testimony: Best Group Fitness Classes in Chicago!
“I’ve been a member of Lakeshore Sport & Fitness for over six months and applaud the desk, owner, staff, instructors and cleaning staff that welcome all members.  I sincerely appreciate the hands-on customized assistance each instructor gives to students during the class.  No matter what your level, Joanna, Melissa, Brendan, Tatiana, TonE and all the instructors, guide you according to your level of ability. This is the first place in over ten years of paying for health clubs where I feel there’s exercise formats for everyone with down-to-earth staff and instructors.  From barre class and weight training to yoga to pool to outdoor activities to wall climbing, there’s all types of exercise that fit your needs.  After six months of going to Lakeshore for just 3-days a week, I have a great new energy level.  I highly recommend Lakeshore Sport & Fitness!” – Laurie O.

Thanks Laurie! We love our group fitness class too. Need help deciding what group fitness class is best for you? Please reach out to MarceloE@LakeshoreSF.com.

Physical Therapy for Vertigo!
Vertigo is the sensation of spinning or that the room is moving around you. There are a number of conditions that can lead to vertigo; inner ear disorders, migraines, tumors, head injuries or stroke. In most cases, the cause of vertigo involves the inner ear, part of the vestibular system (your body’s balance system). It uses the organs of your inner ear to relate to your brain where your head and body are in space to keep your eyes focused and body stable.  One of the most common causes of vertigo is Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV). BPPV is an inner ear disorder that produces short periods of spinning when your head is in a certain position. BPPV occurs when tiny crystals in your ear are dislodged and move into another part of the ear (semicircular canals) where they are not supposed to be. Physical therapy can be quite effective in treating BPPV.  The therapist will conduct a series of positional tests to determine which inner ear is the culprit and which of the six semicircular canals is involved.   Specific head motions or maneuvers to reposition the crystals within the inner ear are then performed to relieve the symptoms of vertigo. Oftentimes, patients experience relief after just one treatment.  Successful rehabilitation also includes balance exercises to help strengthen your vestibular system.

Lakeshore Sport & Fitness is fortunate to have the experienced physical therapists of Lakeshore Physical Therapy on site at both locations.  Click here for more information or to schedule an appointment:  www.lakeshore-pt.com
