Balance and Vestibular Rehabilitation
Are you struggling with balance deficits, experiencing dizziness or afraid of falling? Our goal is to evaluate and determine all the factors that may be contributing to your imbalance and implement a specialized treatment plan that will allow you to live life to your fullest potential.
While there are many factors contributing to imbalance, impairment of the vestibular system in the inner ear may be a leading cause. The vestibular system, along with your visual and sensory systems provide the brain with information about motion and your body’s position in space. When there is an impairment in one of these systems, your body experiences a mismatch of information resulting in imbalance.
Dizziness, vertigo, and difficulty stabilizing your gaze may also be symptoms of vestibular dysfunction. These symptoms are not only frightening and debilitating but can interfere with work, school, driving, and your overall independence. You may also be at a higher risk for falls during and after a bout of vertigo.
