Our Science-Backed Approach
to Dizziness and Balance Issues

It is our goal to help patients safely and successfully return to their daily activities and live DIZZY-FREE. We do this through a proprietary approach, known as Advanced Vestibular Treatment, or AVT, which is a proven, audiologist-directed personalized plan that is frequently more effective in resolving symptoms caused by vestibular disorders than more traditional physical therapy options and/or medications. 


Select AVT programs may also involve a customized home-based exercise option (your treating Audiologist will determine if that’s the right option for you).
