Cranio-Facial TMJ Dysfunction and Pain
One on One Physical Therapy offers specialized vestibular therapy treatment for the Vestibular System, which is responsible for controlling precise body movements, balance or equilibrium, and sense of position. Balance disorders can be debilitating and lead to catastrophic events such as a fall with injury. Patients suffering from insults to this system may experience vertigo, balance problems, light-headiness, a floating feeling, nausea, blurred vision, confusion or disorientation.
