Balance Training

balance-trainingBalance Training & Vestibular Rehabilitation

Balance Training program is available for patients with various vestibular problems, including central and/or peripheral vestibular dysfunction, and paroxysmal vertigo.

Balance training is also available for patients with unsteady gait and history of falls.  This program is especially beneficial for elderly patients who have balance problems and would like to prevent injuries from falling.

Dr. Lucia Zamorano and her staff treat a wide variety of patients with their Balance Training Program.  Patients who consistently attend training sessions report a range of benefits, including increased focus and concentration, no longer requiring assistance to walk, and drastic decreases with balance problems and feelings of dizziness.

Patients who feel they may benefit from balance training should be screened with video nystagmography (VENG) to determine the cause of their balance problems/dizziness.  If a patient is a candidate for the program, then he or she will be scheduled for weekly training sessions convenient to the patient’s schedule.
