Meritus Physical Therapy leads the way in neurological and vestibular rehabilitation by combining hands-on therapy and the use of state-of-the art equipment and assistive technologies to evaluate, test and treat patients for effective and positive outcomes. Common neurological diagnoses seen in this program are stroke, traumatic brain and spinal cord injury, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, alateral sclerosis (ALS) and Guillian-Barre.
Balance or vestibular rehabilitation assists individuals with loss of balance, dizziness, spinning (vertigo), nausea/vomiting associated with movement and frequent falls. A thorough evaluation of the vestibular and neuromuscular system including strength, range of motion, head and eye movements, mobility, coordination, and balance improves patients' functionality and mobility and reduces their risk of falls.
Meritus Physical Therapy helps patients overcome health challenges and return to the life and activities they enjoy through our wellness programs and outpatient therapies.
