Balance Center

We pride ourselves on our commitment to our patients

At Harper Physical Therapy we recognize how dysfunctional balance and dizziness issues can be.

Do you experience dizziness, a fear of falling or unsteadiness on your feet?

You are not alone, studies indicate one in three adults may suffer from balance or dizziness problems.  Even athletes, children, and teenagers can be effected and limited by dizziness and /or balance issues.

Do you realize that you use balance in nearly every daily activity?

Whether it is a walk on the beach, a stroll in the neighborhood, or shopping for dinner all of these activities depend on the ability to control ones balance.  Balance problems and/ or dizziness make simple things very difficult  and jeopardize your safety.

We designed this balance program to safely and effectively manage a variety of balance and dizziness disorders.

Vestibular rehabilitation and balance retraining therapy is specifically designed to address a variety of central or peripheral nervous system impairments contributing to vertigo and balance issues. A licensed physical therapist will evaluate your specific balance / dizziness condition and design a custom treatment regimen for your specific limitations.
