Individuals having problems related to dizziness and balance will likely benefit from Balance Therapy. Treatments may involve manual therapy and exercise-based therapy to help improve the vestibular balance system, while other exercises may be needed to improve balance control and reduce the risk of falling.
The aging population is at higher risk for balance control and falling. This often leads to difficulty in the simplest daily movements. At ApexNetwork Physical Therapy, our therapists design customized programs to address each patient’s specific needs relating to:
• Muscle weakness
• Fear of falling
With Balance Therapy, we offer Concussion Management and Balance Assessments.
For individuals recovering from a concussion, treatment plans that are designed to help with the common side effects. The most common side effects from a concussion include headaches, neck pain, dizziness and balance problems. In addition to therapy, rest is necessary, followed by a gradual return to previous activities to achieve a full recovery of normal brain function.
For athletes, baseline information is collected regarding balance function using various tests for comparison, if needed, following a concussion. This information assists our therapists in determining when an athlete is safe to resume sports participation.
Balance disorders are one of the most common diagnoses for hospital admission in individuals over 65 years of age. If any of the Vision, Inner ear or Muscular systems in the body are not working properly, imbalance can occur. Our physical therapists have the tools and training to accurately identify the source of imbalance/vertigo as well as develop a customized rehab program to treat patients with balance issues and resolve their symptoms.
