Having balance issues, dizziness, being unsteady on your feet or suffering the effects of a concussion can certainly cause anxiety and negatively impact your life. We understand your concerns and have a lot of successful experience with this field of specialized care.
Balance and gait
Seniors, in particular, suffer from balance and gait problems. Many think it is a natural part of aging, but we couldn’t disagree more. A few sessions with our physical therapists to design a customized treatment plan to increase core strength, flexibility, and posture can make a world of difference.

Balance and gait
One of the most important functions that seniors must maintain is balance. Our number one priority is to evaluate all Medicare patients for risk of falling, as this is the cornerstone for maintaining good health as you age. Without proper balance every day activities become much more difficult. Even if you don’t think you could benefit from a little bit of balance, strength, and flexibility training, you probably could.

Whether you need rehabilitation for pain, an injury or surgical procedure, or want to improve your daily function and reduce the risk of falls, we used evidenced-based treatments to help you achieve your goals.
Dizziness and vertigo
Dizziness caused by Vertigo is treated in our Costa Mesa office. We use computerized balance testing and training for more robust measurements and quicker recoveries. For patients suffering from BPPV (benign paroxysmal positional vertigo) we are trained in the Epeley maneuver. Often we can see results in one or two visits.

Concussions are another specialty. We work closely with your physician to ensure athletes are cleared to return to sport. We also treat patients that have been in accidents and experience concussion, often not diagnosed until weeks or months after the incident. Learn more about our concussion program.
Parkinson’s Disease is a progressive neurological condition that affects the brain’s ability to communicate with the muscles affecting balance. If you have been diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease even if you are experiencing minimal symptoms or are on medication to control symptoms, it is highly beneficial to begin physical therapy as soon as possible. Specialized exercise programs can help your long-term mobility. Learn More about our Parkinson’s Disease physical therapy program.
