Balance and Vestibular 

More Than One-third of Adults 65 & Older Fall Each Year

Of those who fall, 20% to 30% suffer moderate to severe injuries that make it hard to get around or live alone and increase the chances of early death

Balance training and rehabilitation has been repeatedly demonstrated to provide both functional gains and reduce risk for falling

Physical and Occupational Therapy (PT and OT) are one of the rehabilitation specialists of choice for balance training.  Therapists are able to perform comprehensive evaluations and assessments of functional limitations.

A physical therapist specializing in the treatment of balance disorders can assess and treat multiple complaints including:

  • Vertigo
  • Dizziness
  • Falls / Loss of Balance
  • Benign Paroxysmal Positioning Vertigo (BPPV)
  • Meniere's Disease
  • Abnormal walking ability
  • Acoustic neuroma inflammation of the vestibular nerve
  • Stroke - Cerebral Vascular Accident (CVA)
  • Traumatic Brain Injury
  • Work related balance / dizziness injuries
  • In addition to many others

Baylor Medical Center at Irving has the unique opportunity to assist with assessment and treatment of individuals with the assistance of the EquiTest Smart Balance Master system.  The EquiTest system is able to assist with assessment of the individual's ability to sense stability and balance sensory function.  The system is able to assess the ability of your legs / feet, vision and inner ear function.
