Dizziness/Balance Retraining

Dizziness and Vertigo

These problems can come from several areas of the brain and/or nervous system.  In-depth, specific neurological and functional evaluation allows us to find and target the primary component of your problem, and develop a specialized plan to quickly and efficiently address it.

Concussion?

Disturbances in balance and problems with dizziness are not only common post-concussion problems, they can seriously impede an athlete’s competitive abilities, and may not always resolve by themselves.  Our balance retraining program starts as easy as is needed, can can be tailored specifically to any sport or position.

 

 

Unsteadiness?

General unsteadiness, or difficulty maintaining balance with everyday activities, is very common in the elderly.  When not addressed, will lead to falls and serious injury.

Most of the time, this kind of unsteadiness is the result of a combination of loss of sensation and proprioception (the ability to know where one’s body is), diminished vision, muscular weakness in the hip girdle, and poor flexibility in the legs.

Over time most people develop habits to compensate for their problems, making the situation even more complex as time goes on.

Who Knows What To Do?

How do you know if a cane or walker is needed?  How do you know what activities are appropriate and what activities are dangerous?  A therapist specially trained in orthopedics and balance disorders can make quick work of these kinds of problems, and provide advice regarding assistive devices like canes, walkers, grab bars, and ramps for future safety and mobility.
