Hello! I appreciate you visiting this site.
I have had the opportunity to work as a physical therapist in clinical practices that focus primarily on inner ear disorders. In doing so I have seen many complex cases of vertigo and have gained an understanding to efficient evaluation and treatment options for managing vestibular disorders.
In my practice I work closely with medical providers including otolaryngologists (ENTs); audiologists, neurologists, nutritionists, radiologists, psychologists, optometrists/neuro-ophthalmologists, massage therapists, naturopathic doctors, physicians, and many physical and occupational therapists. It can take a multidisciplinary approach to manage some vestibular conditions and it is important to have a good team that supports you.
I have seen many lives changed, not only for those with a vestibular disorder, but their loved ones as well. Many vertigo cases can be managed quickly if diagnosed and treated properly. This saves an individual and our health care system valuable time and money.
Sometimes vertigo can hit when you are not at home with your usual resources. Well, vertigo never comes at a "good time," so long as you have internet for video conferencing, we are available. Not every inner ear condition can be managed effectively via remote access, so we can often help you find a reliable resource closer to home.
I am inspired daily to work with patients and other dedicated professionals to help manage vestibular disorders. I hope the information on this site educates and empowers you to know that you can regain control of your life when you have vertigo or imbalance.
There is hope. You are not alone.
We are here for you!
