- Improves Balance and Reduces Fall Risk
- Quick Response
- Customized and Tailored Program for All Issues
The vestibule of the inner ear, along with vision and sensation, are the three systems used to maintain balance. When problems occur in one or more of these systems, the result is dizziness or imbalance.
CAM's Vestibular Rehabilitation Program focuses on problems originating from the vestibule of the inner ear. The primary cause of vestibular issues is disease or injury that damages the vestibule thereby leading the individual to receive mixed informational signals involving motion, equilibrium, and balance.
- Focus on Fall Prevention
- Low-Impact Muscle Strengthening Exercises
- Pain-Free Sessions Scheduled at Your Convenience
- Licensed Therapists & Clinicians
More than 90 Million Americans have experienced a balance disorder and 35% of people over the age of 65 will fall each year. That number increases to 50% for people over the age of 85. Falls account for more than half of all accidental deaths among the elderly, however there is a treatment option available for dizziness or disequilibrium which can prevent 30-40% of all falls.
Balance training can successfully treat most types of balance disorders. The therapy consists of special exercises that are provided by a licensed clinician.

- Limited Jaw Opening
Temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD) is a common condition that limits the natural function of the jaw, such as opening the mouth and chewing, and can cause pain. The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is a hinge joint that connects your jaw to your skull in front of your ear. When the TMJ is not working correctly, you may experience jaw pain, jaw fatigue, difficulty opening your mouth to eat or talk, clicking, popping, or even locking of the joint. Other common symptoms can be headaches, neck pain, dizziness and ringing in the ear Our physical therapists can help restore the natural movement of your jaw and decrease your pain. Based on your condition, our therapists will select treatments that will work best for you using a variety of techniques to improve your range of motion to include skilled hands-on techniques (manual therapy) to gently increase movement and relieve pain in tissues and joints. Our therapists also can prescribe TMJ specific exercises and provide posture education.
ConcussionWhat is a concussion?
A concussion is an injury to the brain that is caused by a blow to the head or violent shaking of the head where the brain rapidly moves back and forth. This rapid movement may cause chemical changes or damage brain cells potentially resulting in sleep disturbances, cognitive changes, emotional disturbances, and/or physical symptoms (listed below). Every concussion is different and will present with variable symptoms based on where the brain injury occurs. Usually concussions are non-life threating; however, a concussion is still very serious!!
