Balance Assessment and Treatment

Balance problems can occur for many reasons, including concussion, movement disorders, neurodegenerative disease and orthopedic injuries. Whatever the cause, rehabilitative specialists at Rush can help — even if you’ve had trouble getting an accurate diagnosis in the past.

At Rush, balance problems are assessed using dynamic posturography, an advanced diagnostic tool that is able to differentiate between sensory, motor and adaptive components of a balance problem.

Specialists can then develop a customized, goal-oriented treatment plan that includes balance retraining to help improve your overall balance.
