Avera Queen of Peace recently opened the doors to a brand new Balance Center dedicated to helping people struggling with their center of gravity regain it.  We talked to Dr. Patricia Larson Shields,  who fought hard to bring this unique high tech equipment to the community.

Dr. Patricia Larson Shields, AuD, FAAA, MACCCSP/L says, "We started with an idea three years ago and decided we needed a comprehensive task making sure we look at the hearing, entire ear, muscular and skeletal systems, vision, their diet, and alternatives to find out if they have  gotten chiropractic work done or used herbs. That's how we got started. The patients we see are global. Some say they don't feel right that they have lost their center of gravity to those who have had frequent falls, diabetics, those who have had strokes, MS patients or patients who may suspect they have MS, brain injuries. Really, a whole spectrum."
