Conditions We Treat

Balance & Falls

Falls are common after age 65, but we shouldn't think they are a normal part of the aging process. A physical therapist is trained to examine if you have walking and balance problems and conduct a risk assessment to see if you are likely to fall.

Concussions

Concussions—head injuries than can affect your mood and memory—can also affect your balance. But with physical therapy and exercise, you can reduce dizziness and balance problems. 

Vestibular (Inner Ear) Disorders

The vestibular system—the delicate nerves and channels inside your inner ear—communicates messages to your brain to help your body feel balanced. Vestibular disorders cause dizziness and make it difficult to stay balanced. Vestibular rehabilitation can improve the symptoms of dizziness, as well as any balance problems you may have.

After-Stroke Care

After a stroke, it's important for your muscles to relearn skills they have forgotten after a stroke damages certain parts of your brain. Our physical therapists specialize in treating disabilities caused by motor and sensory problems to help you regain control over your motor (muscle) functions.

Urinary Incontinence & Pelvic Floor Disorders

Urinary incontinence (or leaking urine uncontrollably) occurs when the muscles in your pelvic floor are stressed or spasm. Our physical therapists can recommend treatments to strengthen your pelvic muscles, giving you more control over when (and where) you go to the bathroom.
