Vestibular/Balance Rehabilitation
At Columbus Center for Medical Rehabilitation we provide a comprehensive outpatient program designed to assess and treat patients who suffer from imbalance, unsteadiness, poor coordination, gait disturbances, dizziness/vertigo, and visual motor difficulties. This program uses a customized approach to prescribing exercises to remediate symptoms and deficits as well as a computerized balance feedback machine (KAT 3000). The goal is to return the individual to a maximum level of functioning at home, at the workplace, and community despite illness and disability.

At Columbus Center for Medical Rehabilitation, we create a customized treatment program based upon an evaluation performed by a Physical Therapist and Occupational Therapist, taking into consideration the individualís diagnosis, medical history, and diagnostic test results. Elements of treatment are incorporated into a home exercise program, which the patient is expected to perform on a consistent basis. Treatment sessions will be scheduled with the individual therapists to monitor progress, correct and/or update exercise program, and reevaluate as needed. Activities of daily living are addressed as needed to ensure a better quality of life. Candidates for our program include individuals with the following symptoms:

  • Dizziness associated with position changes and head movements
  • Balance impairments
  • Gait difficulty
  • History of falls
  • Changes in activity levels
  • Double and / or blurry vision
  • Nausea
  • Ringing in the ears and/or hearing loss
