Balance is our specialty at Active Life PT. According to the National Institute of Health, balance is a composite of many body systems. Whether it is a knee, inner ear, or neurological problem, we have you covered. 

To zero in on the cause, we conduct a complete evaluation of your musculoskeletal, neurological, and balance systems. During the evaluation, we analyze three primary systems - visual, sensation, and vestibular - that contribute to balance.

 

Based on this comprehensive assessment, we design a personalized rehabilitation program that gets you back on your feet again.

Vestibular Rehabilitation

The vestibular system is the main sensory component of balance in order to coordinate movement. It is located in the inner ear. 

Vestibular rehabilitation is an exercise-based program designed to reduce dizziness and improve balance. 

 

One of the most common conditions we treat is benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV). BPPV is a sudden onset of vertigo (spinning dizziness) brought on by head movement. This is caused by debris (sometimes called rocks or crystals) in the inner ear.
