Balance & Gait Disorders

Physical Therapists are experts in the art and science of the evaluation and treatment of human movement and balance dysfunctions. We care for a variety of muscle, joint, and nervous system disorders that can affect your balance.

Don't ignore the Facts:

  • One of every three persons age 65 and older falls each year.
  • Falls are the leading cause of injury and accidental death in those over the age of 85.
  • In 2005, 15,800 people 65 and older died from injuries related to unintentional falls.
  • About 1.8 million people 65 and older were treated in ERs for injuries sustained from falls (CDC 2008).


  • I am very grateful to physiotherapist Alpa and her assistant Dhwani for their treatment of my vertigo and balance issues over the past few weeks. Alpa gently got me through three weeks of vertigo attacks with her assurance and skills to ease me away from these occurrences. She and Dhwani showed me balance exercises that I will continue to use to ensure that I don't have age related falls. Thank you to both for their expertise. I highly recommend them.

  • I was suffering from dizziness when turning my head and waking up with headaches every day. In 5 short weeks with chiropractic treatment and massage in the problem area, my quality of life has definitely Improved. The dizziness is gone and I no longer have morning headaches. All thanks to Dr. Ivan Kirov.

    Dr. Ivan Kirov is friendly, but above all he is knowledgeable and professional. He will listen to what the problem is and comes up with a plan that is comfortable for the patient to aid in healing the issue.
