Vestibular and Balance Program
Outpatient Therapy Referrals: 706-823-8504
Walton offers a rehabilitation program specifically designed to help clients with dizziness/vertigo, and balance problems. Balance problems are puzzling because so many of the body's systems work together. We maintain our balance through the integration of three systems: vestibular, somatosensory and visual. Therefore, a person with balance difficulties may be experiencing involvement of one or more of those systems.
A trained team will evaluate the individual to determine the systems involved. Following a thorough evaluation, the team will develop a plan of care with input from the client. The client will receive an individualized rehabilitation plan. Exercises are developed to decrease symptoms of dizziness or vertigo, improve balance, and maximize central nervous system compensation for vestibular loss.
