Common complaints of vestibular (inner ear) and balance dysfunctions include dizziness, loss of balance, difficulty walking, and trouble with basic daily activities.
Ashley Jones, MPT and Vicki Keller, PT are specially trained in vestibular dysfunction and balance disorders. Evaluation and assessment of the vestibular, musculoskeletal, proprioceptive and visual systems is followed by formulation of a treatment plan specific to the patient’s particular disorder.
Balance problems can quickly cause loss of function and deterioration in both physical and social areas. Physical therapy is an effective way to improve balance problems and reduce the complications associated with these disorders.
