Balance Training for Vertigo symptoms
We use individualized balance training to address vertigo, dizziness, lightheadedness, and gait impairments which stem from disrupted sensory and motor processing pathways of central nervous system. Much of the modalities used in testing balance control can be used for therapy as well, in conjunction with exercises that are targeted to improve specific brain structures. We utilize balance boards, balance platforms, and balance balls which increases activation of the cerebellar structures that control posture, head and eye yoked movements, and core stability. This therapy may be combined with other movement patterns such as ball throwing/catching, or complex movements of the extremities to target cortical and cerebellar brain structures. We also strive to include a variety of gait and balance training protocols to promote dynamic movement patterns and reflexogenic responses that are necessary for optimal human function.
