Balance Clinic

Through the use of our Neurocom® Balance Master (Computerized Dynamic Posturography [CDP]), this clinic offers services for the evaluation and treatment of children and adolescents with balance and movement disorders.

The main objective in identifying balance disorders is to implement treatments to improve function and mobility, prevent injury, and increase a patient's ability to carry out the activities of daily living

Conditions seen include, but are not limited to:

  • Concussions
  • Sports Injuries
  • Traumatic Brain Injuries
  • Multi-trauma
  • Orthopaedic Injuries
  • Cerebral Palsy
  • Amputation
  • Mobility Disorders
  • Vestibular and Dizziness
  • Brain Tumor Resection
  • Cerebellar Ataxia
  • Encephalopathy (status post)
  • Stroke (status post)
  • Meningitis (status post)
  • Seizure Disorders
  • Spinal Cord Injuries

Following a referral from a physician, the clinic will provide an assessment of the patient's balance and mobility status by occupational and physical therapists. These clinicians, in combination with the referring physician, will determine a care plan that integrates the family and patient's goals with the clinical findings.

Services will be available through occupational and physical therapy to treat the condition with evidencebased protocols that are customized and individualized for the patient's needs. Referrals to audiology, neurology, ophthalmology, orthopaedics and physiatry may also result.
