Balance and Vestibular Rehabilitation Program

Balance and vestibular problems are common, yet few are aware that effective treatment is available. Folsom Physical Therapy has developed Vestibular and Balance Rehabilitation to help people with balance disorders return to comfortable, safe and enhanced activity and lifestyle.

How do our physical therapists help with vestibular and balance issues?

A physical therapist specialized in treating balance disorders first evaluates you to determine the nature of your dysfunction. In the case of balance problems, the involved systems could be of an orthopedic, cardiovascular, metabolic, or central or peripheral neurological nature.

Based on the evaluation, a rehabilitation program is designed to address your balance, dizziness, overall fitness level, education on management of symptoms and activity pacing to help build confidence and restore functional mobility.

Folsom Physical Therapy’s Balance and Vestibular Rehabilitation Program can address:

  • Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo
  • Loss of balance from aging or injury
  • Fall prevention
  • Post-stroke loss of balance
  • Cervicogenic dizziness
  • Space and motion discomfort
  • Post-concussive dizziness
  • Post-surgical acoustic neuroma dizziness

What Our Clients Say

Ginger M.

I was fortunate to be under the care of Brigit after suffering a bout of vertigo. Brigit’s training and expertise got me through. I cannot express enough how being a part of the FPT community has brought me good health and a community of friends. Thanks FPT!

Pam D.

Several years ago, I developed a bad case of vertigo and Brigit’s knowledge in the vestibular field was exactly what I needed.  The thorough treatments and exercises she has given me have been extremely helpful with my cervicogenic dizziness.
