Peak Performance’s Balance for Life program strives to restore stability and function to people who are suffering from dizziness as well as Gait and Balance disorders. Offering evaluations and treatment for dizziness, vertigo, motion sensitivity, imbalance and more; we understand how frustrating and frightening life can become when you suffer from instability, falls and dizziness.
Highlights of this program:
Fall Risk Screening
Our therapists will use evidence based functional testing to determine your risk for falling. A comprehensive individualized treatment program to treat your imbalance.
(Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo)
We use Infared Frenzel Googgles to accurately assess nystagmus (involuntary eye movements) to determine which inner ear canal is causing B.P.P.V; Then we use appropriate canal repositioning treatment to resolve B.P.P.V.
Our team has over 55 years of experience in vestibular rehabilitation with 4 Emory Certified Vestibular Specialists. They will customize exercises to treat you appropriately using Vestibular Ocular Reflex training, and static/dynamic balance exercises.
We offer return to play, vestibular rehabilitation for concussions with vestibular dysfunction, and modify behavior to help you manage your concussion.
WHAT TO EXPECT DURING YOUR EVALUATION:
Evaluation for imbalance and or dizziness is done by an Emory Certified Vestibular Therapist who specializes in balance and vertigo treatment.
While performing our initial evaluation we are looking to provoke imbalance and/or dizziness safely. We start with analyzing a detailed medical history, then we determine the cause of your symptoms. We examine strength, coordination, ocular movements, standing balance, walking balance, positional tests, sensation and reflexes. The exam may elicit temporary symptoms that subside with rest. This is the first step in your journey to reclaiming your balance and stability.
