Is dizziness, nausea, blurred vision, or impaired balance making it hard to get out of bed, drive, read, stand up, walk, and perform your normal work or home duties?
Vestibular therapy is a special form of rehabilitation targeted at improving and resolving issues related to the vestibular system (our inner ear).
The vestibular system is a complex structure in charge of coordinating information received from the outside world and relaying that information to our brain. When that system is off, the way we perceive and take in the world becomes dysfunctional. The most common symptom is dizziness, or vertigo, but dysfunction can also come in the form of difficulty changing positions, blurry vision with head movement, feeling off, inability to maintain upright posture, getting pulled 1 way or the other, or inability to tolerate moving objects.
The symptoms of vestibular system dysfunction come in many different varieties but all greatly impact our ability to move about our environment. At RecoverRx Performance Physical Therapy, our therapists have special training in the management of vestibular issues. Your therapist will perform a detailed evaluation assessing the health of your vestibular system. This will create an individualized treatment plan targeted at your specific goals.

“Dr Ariel is fabulous to work with! I saw her postpartum for 2 pregnancies, she listened to all my concerns and was able to provide so many resources to get my pelvic health back in tip top shape. She tailored specific workouts and regiments for my skill level, challenged me, provided endless amounts of information and education and tools to help me at home. She took her time didn’t rush the appointments, was prompt with scheduling and returning calls/emails. Dr Ariel has a wonderful demeanor, professional, caring, knowledgeable and a wonderful personality. Wish I would have seen her prior to pregnancy! I highly recommend seeing her for her services and I tell all my friends to go see her!”

“Luke did a fabulous job helping me rehab my rotator shoulder injury! He was so flexible on schedule with my work and travel and really exceeding all my expectations on the PT I got. I have had other issues like a knee repair procedure and had to live with middle of the day scheduling and standard canned approaches. Luke took the time with he and gave me the customized exercises I needed, worked with me on my lifting form to avoid future injuries, and did a variety of dry needle and other manipulation therapies that were very effective. I am back lifting and am really pleased with my progress! My knee had a short-term aggravation that he solved too during my other PT work which avoided more appointments and time challenges. I whole heartedly recommend Luke and his clinic for PT! Thank you so much, Luke! Great Work!”

“Dr. David Bokermann was amazing to work with. I was referred to RecoverRX by a close friend because I was having a lot of shoulder pain. At one point I was having trouble just being able to put on deodorant because the pain was so bad. I though for sure that I was going to need to have surgery. I just figured I was getting old and all of the abuse that I put my arm through in my youth was catching up to me. Dr. David explained that I wasn’t going to need surgery and that what I had was a muscle imbalance. I signed up for 10 sessions with him and I am happy to say that I am pain free again. I would highly recommend them to anyone.”
