Dizziness and disequilibrium are second only to low back pain in frequency of occurrence in the adult population. Balance and Vestibular deficits are a major medical concern, and the resulting effects of an untreated balance disorder can be devastating. The good news is that in many cases a physical therapy implemented treatment plan can successfully treat the problem, preventing subsequent injury.
We provide specific treatment protocols for specific diagnoses, with a focus on alleviation of symptoms and return of function. Contact our experts with any questions you may have about balance or any rehabilitation related concerns.
