Five of our therapists are certified in vestibular rehabilitation and two are board-certified in neurological physical therapy. These professionals listen to your account of your problems, select standardized assessment tools that determine impairments, provide information to referring providers to determine an accurate diagnosis, and develop customized plans of treatment tailored to meet your needs. Treatment is carried on in the clinic and reinforced by a home program.
