BALANCE AND VESTIBULAR THERAPY
WHAT IS A BALANCE DISORDER?
A balance disorder is a condition that makes you feel unsteady or dizzy. If you are standing, sitting, or lying down, you might feel as if you are moving, spinning, or floating. If you are walking, you might suddenly feel unsteady. Experts believe that more than four out of 10 Americans, sometime in their lives, will experience an episode of dizziness significant enough to send them to a doctor.

HOW OUR PHYSICAL THERAPISTS CAN HELP
There are many reasons why you might have balance difficulties, so treatment of balance and dizziness disorders can be very complex. Your doctor will assess what might be the root causes in your case and refer you to us for treatment.
Proper balance requires the integration of three sensory systems:
Your somatosensory system
Your vestibular system
Using state-of-the-art equipment and technology, we can assess all three of these systems to plan and execute your personalized treatment plan using a combination of:
Coordination and proprioception
Stretching and Range of Motion
Inner Ear Retraining
