Balance, Dizziness and Fall Prevention
Falls are the leading cause of fatal and non-fatal injuries for older Americans. According to the U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention, one in four Americans aged 65+ falls each year, resulting in over 2.8 million emergency room visits and 800,000 hospitalizations annually. SporTherapy has skilled clinicians who have been trained to treat balance and vestibular disorders as well as provide comprehensive education and training regarding fall prevention.

Hear what other SporTherapy patients have to say.
My experience has been astounding. The entire staff is made up of professional individuals who want to make a positive impact on their patients, and every single team member is amiable.

I HIGHLY recommend SporTherapy…they are a very friendly and helpful group.
I really love this place. Everyone is super laid back, which is what you want when you’re recovering from an injury. Super professional and knowledgeable team. A+ all around.
Awesome, knowledgeable staff! It can be beyond frustrating to rehabilitate an injury, but this is definitely the place to do it! All in all, a great place and assuredly where I’ll be doing my rehab next time! If I could, I’d rate this place 10 or 11 stars, but I can only put 5.
