Education is Therapy

The most important part of treating a balance disorder is understanding your diagnosis, the cause of the problem, and how to manage it. That’s why we place great emphasis on patient education and coordination of care with your referring physician.

 

Three Additional and Important Treatment Options:

R

Reduce Fall Risk

Your physical therapist will assess problem footwear and hazards in your home that increase your risk of balance problems or falling. Household hazards include loose rugs, poor lighting, unrestrained pets, or other possible obstacles.

R

Reduce Fear of Falling

By addressing specific problems that are found during the examination, your physical therapist will help you regain confidence in your balance and your ability to move freely, and perform daily activities. As you build confidence in your balance and physical ability, you will be better able to enjoy your normal daily activities.

R

Care Collaboration

Working in collaboration with your medical doctor, allows you to get two expert opinions and assessments of your condition. Together, we can better address your balance disorders and decrease your fear of falling and fall risks.

Positional Vertigo – A Common Cause of Dizziness & Balance Disorders

If you have BPPV (benign paroxysmal positional vertigo), our vestibular therapy experts can perform a series of simple movements, such as the Epley maneuver, which can help dislodge the otoconia (calcium crystals) from the semicircular canal of the ear. In many cases, one session works; other people need the procedure several times to relieve their dizziness.

What Our Clients Say

I have visited 3 times and each time it’s been an encouraging experience as I work through my therapy. Travis has been considerate of my abilities and helped me move forward as I recover.

Sue Stroud

I received physical therapy at the Southeastern – Fairview location.

The PT’s name was Phillip and he was really amazing!!! I can’t tell you how comfortable he made me feel and his assessment of my problem was spot on! I was feeling better in the first couple of weeks.
He explained what he was doing as he was doing it which I greatly appreciated.
Beyond the Physical Therapist, the other office staff were amazing and inviting. When you walked in the building it felt like you were visiting family or a good friend.

I would recommend this location to anyone!!! Especially if you’re kind of afraid and it’s your first time experiencing PT. This office was very welcoming .
