Happy Halloween

Arroyo Physical Therapy wishes everyone a safe and fun filled Halloween how ever you celebrate. Don’t hesitate to use a walking stick to help with your balance while walking around your neighborhood and especially at night when you can’t see well. Walk slowly and try to avoid children that are running around. And if you’ve been drinking, remember to not drink and drive.

Treatment Options for Vestibular Dysfunction

There are treatment options for vestibular dysfunction. At Arroyo Physical Therapy, we perform tests and evaluations to determine the best treatment option based upon what we find and an individuals signs and symptoms. You may need adaptation exercises or substitution exercises or habituation exercises. It is important to determine the appropriate exercise based on the individual’s needs and results of testing and evaluation.
