  • Vestibular Rehabilitation Therapy is a form of physical therapy designed to treat people with vertigo and balance problems. Vertigo and balance problems can be related to a variety of diagnoses of peripheral or central nervous system origin. It is important to have an extensive evaluation and an accurate diagnosis of your vestibular problem, by a physician, in order to properly treat this problem. The goal of Vestibular Rehabilitation Therapy is to improve balance, decrease dizziness and to minimize falls by restoring normal vestibular function. Treatment can include balance, gait training, habituation exercises, postural re-training and therapeutic exercises to improve strength, flexibility and recovery strategies. Common diagnoses include:

Sports injuries can occur from accidents, poor training, “over-training”, improper equipment and from insufficient “warm-ups” or stretching. Although virtually any part of the body can be injured during sports or exercise, the term usually refers to injuries that involve the musculoskeletal system. The musculoskeletal system includes the muscles, bones, cartilage, ligaments and tendons. Below is a list of the most common sports injuries seen in our clinic:
