Vestibular and Balance Rehabilitation

Vestibular and balance rehabilitation is an exercise-based program designed to identify and care for the underlying causes of dizziness, vertigo and other balance problems. Our specialized therapists understand these unique challenges and utilize techniques to minimize medication use, prevent surgery and decrease the risk of falling.

Brain Injury, Concussion and Stroke Specialty Programs

Specialty Programs are intensive outpatient programs that help people make the transition from an acute-care setting to their homes, jobs and communities.

These Specialty Programs are offered at IVORY PHYSIOTHERAPY CLINIC and are centered on a commitment to personalized care, shaped to help fit your specific needs and goals.

During program hours, you participate in therapies designed to optimize functional, cognitive and physical skills. When appropriate, therapists may go with you to your home or workplace to ease the use of the strategies and skills learned during rehab.

Family members are also considered an integral part in setting therapy goals and transferring skills to the home environment. Because these Specialty Programs recognize that brain injury affects the whole family, various forms of support such as education and counseling are offered to members of your family.
