WHY SHOULD YOU SEE A BALANCE SPECIALIST?
How We Can Serve You
A balance specialist has the qualifications, and expertise to do a complete balance assessment to determine the underlying cause(s) of your problem. I will perform specific tests to see your ability to maintain your balance and be able to determine your risk for falling. I will evaluate the sensory input, the brain's central processing, and motor output of your balance control system.

So what happens when balance problems occur?
Most of the time, we don’t think about balance, and its importance — unless we notice a problem: dizziness, vertigo (spinning sensation), staggering, falling, faintness, confusion or blurred vision. It begins to disrupt your day-to-day activity.
Do I need to take action?
Yes, a balance problem can seriously impact your health and livelihood.
Balance disorders can:
-Increase risk for falls
-Disrupt normal sleep patterns
-Shorten attention spans
-Create difficulty with simple tasks
-Cause excessive fatigue
My specialty is treating balance disorders. I work with each of my patients to develop a personalized plan to get them back on their feet, feeling balanced and taking control of their health.
