Balance Screening and Testing

Did you know that nearly 1/2 of all accidental deaths among the elderly are a result of a fall? Among the most common complaints to doctors and physicians is patients reporting falls, dizziness and imbalance, yet most physicians and patients are unaware that these conditions can be treated by Physical Therapy very effectively.

What causes Dizziness, Imbalance and Falls? Some causes may be: middle ear infections, allergies, toxic exposure to medications or chemicals, stroke, head injuries, poor physical condition, diabetes, neuropathy, and other metabolic disorders. Of course, there may be other causes as well. Due to a variety of causes, proper testing and physical evaluation is necessary to ensure proper treatment and therapy.

Testing can include Vestibular Autorotation Test (VAT), Bengin Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV), Ocular Motor Exam and General Physical Screening. Of course your physician may order other tests as well.

Here at Arroyo Physical Therapy we offer these tests. The tests are safe, non-invasive and comfortable. Our therapy programs are successful are designed to help restore functional mobility and balance.

Peripheral Neuropathy

Arroyo Physical Therapy uses Laser/Light Therapy for treating Peripheral Neuropathy. Altho the mechanism of neuropathy can vary (i.e. Diabetes, Chemotherapy, Medications, HIV, etc.) Laser/Light Therapy stimulates healing at the cellular level by increasing nerve function, increasing cellular energy (mitochondria) and metabolism, improves tissue strength (collagen synthesis), and aids in the development and circulation of blood vessels and nutrition. Laser/Light Therapy can also aide in our immunes histamine response, increase growth hormone and relieve symptoms of the healing process.

We have excellent outcomes and the best part is you won’t feel a thing! It’s completely comfortable and pain free! Be sure to ask about our Laser/Light treatments and refer a friend!
