"I was referred to the NeuroRehab & Balance Center by my doctor after I had gone to an ENT to try to discover why I was dizzy and unbalanced. At the first couple of visits, my therapist did several tests and determined that I had an inner ear problem. She did a maneuver that cleared a tube in my ear and made my balance considerably better. After more tests, she started me on exercises to help me gain confidence in my ability to balance and be able to comfortably walk across an open area without fear of falling.
Her knowledge of so many issues concerning balance helped me to understand my problem. I am able to do the exercises she recommended at home to continue to improve my overall balance. This gives me the ability to do the things I enjoy and have a full life.
One of the activities I enjoy is serving the homeless breakfast on Sunday morning. I had to quit passing plates because I had to turn back and forth to get the plates. Last Sunday I did that again with no dizziness. What a joy!
I have recommended the NeuroRehab & Balance Center to several people who have noticed that I am feeling more confident about my ability to do things that I had quit doing or depended on my husband for help to balance. My therapist’s patience and knowledge have changed my life."
