1 Balance and Vestibular Center Specialized Therapy for Dizziness and Disequilibrium

2 Is Marianjoy s Balance and Vestibular Center Right for You? Do you have a fear of falling? Have you fallen or do you feel unsteady on your feet? Do you often lose your balance, trip or stumble? Do you often place a hand on furniture to steady yourself as you walk through a room? Do you often feel dizzy when sitting up from a lying down position or when standing up from a seated position? If you answered yes to any of these questions, you may benefit from an assessment through the Marianjoy Balance and Vestibular Center. For more information call The Bertec Balance Advantage System at Marianjoy s Balance and Vestibular Center. The Marianjoy Balance and Vestibular Center The Marianjoy Balance and Vestibular Center specializes in physical therapy designed to improve balance, decrease dizziness, and minimize falls by restoring normal vestibular function and postural control. Therapists certified in vestibular rehabilitation are trained in balance testing. They are able to comprehensively assess and accurately determine impairments to the vestibular, somatosensory, musculoskeletal, and visual systems. Using specialized technology, assessments may also include infrared video ocular testing, computerized dynamic posturography, and dynamic visual testing. Marianjoy therapists interpret evaluation results and collaborate with referring physicians to develop a comprehensive treatment plan that addresses a patient s impairments and functional goals. Recommended treatment strategies may include muscle strengthening, balance retraining, gait activities, and exercises to improve stable gaze during daily activities. Duration and frequency of therapy is individualized and often includes an emphasis on a home exercise program. Who Can Benefit This program focuses on patients with vestibular or balance disorders that are characterized by any of the following symptoms: Dizziness or vertigo Frequent falls Unsteadiness or disequilibrium Gait difficulty Restrictions of daily activities 2 3

3 The Causes of Dizziness and Disequilibrium There are many causes of dizziness and disequilibrium including: Labyrinthitis-inner ear infection Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV) Acute vertigo caused by head trauma or whiplash Post-Concussive Syndrome Chronic vertigo caused by chemical or drug toxicity Acoustic neuromas Meniere s Disease Age-related multi-sensory deficits Stroke and vascular insufficiencies Peripheral neuropathy RealEyes Infrared Video Goggles System Advanced Technology to Treat and Identify Balance Deficits Bertec Balance Advantage System Marianjoy therapists perform Computerized Dynamic Posturography (CDP) assessments on the Bertec System. It measures an individual s balance and postural stability under dynamic test conditions that are designed to reflect the challenges of everyday life. The CDP assessment tool provides qualitative information to the clinician, identifying the individual sensory and motor abnormalities affecting the patient s balance system. Using the results of the Bertec testing, in combination with the patient s history and other clinical results, specific impairments can be identified. This technology helps Marianjoy clinicians develop a treatment plan specific to the individual s sensory, motor, and central coordinating elements that comprise the balance system. Dynamic Visual Acuity Test (DVA) and Gaze Stabilization Test (GST) For patients with vestibular disorders or complaints of dizziness with head movement, the DVA and GST tests provide quantitative information regarding the patient s ability to maintain visual acuity while moving the head during normal daily activities. This information assists the therapists to identify the specific impairment in order to develop an effective treatment plan. RealEyes Infrared Video Goggles System The RealEyes Video Goggles System allows Marianjoy clinicians to observe, evaluate, and record eye movements of a patient during a vestibular assessment. Clinicians specializing in balance and vestibular issues are able to successfully identify and treat patients by differentiating between central and peripheral vestibular pathology. The infrared video goggles measure and record eye activity which is displayed on a monitor for ease of observation by the clinician and has been shown to be highly effective in diagnosing and treating Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV). 5
