BALANCE & COORDINATION TRAINING
The human body is an intricate machine that needs all parts of it functioning properly in order for it to be efficient. A persons balance is really dependent upon several factors: your inner ear canal, your overall muscle strength and length, your sensation, and your vision. If any one of these factors are affected, issues may arise with your balance.
Here at Total Performance Physical Therapy, we are accustomed to doing a full comprehensive exam to help determine what is the source of the dysfunction and then determining the best treatment plan for you. Treatment for balance disorders can range from vestibular therapy which helps to resolve balance problems stemming from an inner ear problem, general strengthening and stretchingif related to muscular issues, or even massage and other therapeutic modalities, if related to a sensory deficit. Exercises may vary from a beginners level of doing some basic standing exercises, to that of athletes doing single leg jumps onto uneven surfaces. You can be assured that the best treatment plan for you will be established.
