What to expect from your first visit:

Your evaluation will begin with your physical therapist measuring vital signs, asking a few questions and, most importantly, listening to you describe the symptoms you are experiencing.  

Next, your therapist will perform four assessments:

  • Vestibular-Ocular Motor Screening to assess your eye motion and vestibular system.
  • Balance screening to assess your functional balance
  • Cervical spine examination to check for neck impairment
  • Exertion testing that evaluates how your symptoms respond to different levels of physical activity

Last, but certainly not least, you and your therapist will establish a treatment plan and home exercises that are tailored to your specific goals. Follow-up appointments are usually weekly but will vary from patient to patient.
