Vertigo, dizziness, and imbalance are commonly associated with a problem with the inner ear or vestibular system functioning. There are many causes of vertigo and dizziness that are treatable with the guidance of a physical therapist with specialized training in Vestibular Rehabilitation Therapy.
Vestibular Rehabilitation Therapy is a specialized form of physical therapy that uses specific exercises or activities to promote recovery of balance and a sense of stability. The type of therapeutic strategies your therapist implements will depend on the cause of your dizziness and the severity of your symptoms.
Your therapist will conduct a thorough evaluation to help determine if your dizziness will respond to Vestibular Rehabilitation Therapy. Depending on the findings of the physical therapy evaluation, the therapist will then proceed with treatment and/or possibly a referral to another appropriate health care provider. Most often, you will respond quickly and favorably to the initial treatment. Our Physical Therapists have extensive training and expertise in Vestibular Rehabilitation Therapy.

Falls and fear of falling in our senior population are recognized public health crises.
According to the CDC, falls are the leading cause of injury-related deaths in older adults by a wide margin. Each year, more than two million seniors experience a fall severe enough to necessitate emergency medical treatment. This number along with the associated personal and societal costs of falling is expected to rise as our population ages. Despite these grim statistics, many falls are preventable with professional interventions that address the causes of falling in older adults.
Our expert clinicians are trained in evidence-based interventions that are proven by controlled clinical trials to effectively reduce the number of falls in older adults.
There are other factors that also contribute to falls. Neurological conditions such as Parkinson’s Disease, stroke, multiple sclerosis, brain injury, vestibular disorders, and neuropathy also increase fall risk. Our therapy team is well equipped to address the problems of falling and the fear of falling in individuals living with these conditions.
I worked with Tyler at OPTM for my 2 injuries and on both occasions he was fantastic and helped my speedy recovery. He is knowledgeable and has deep expertise. He knows how much to push and challenge. He not only supports your recovery but gives great tips along the way! Highly recommended!
OPTM is the best place for PT. I have been seeing them for years to help me with all of my sports injuries and wear and tear from work. I have tried other PT centers over the years and there is no comparison to OPTM. The therapists are exceptionally knowledgeable and helpful. They are truly interested in you getting well and staying strong and pain free. I highly recommend them to anyone with PT needs. They also offer cold laser therapy which is a very effective treatment as well.
I came in with knee pain. They listened to my issues, tested different motions to identify where specially my pain was, and developed a strategy to match. They were professional and progressed me along as I built back my strength to stabilize my knees. Occasionally I would come in with a set back from my activities during the week and they would listen and adjust their treatment. Typical treatment was some hands on work followed by various strengthening exercises. I was given homework exercises to do at home. They made sure I understood how to do them properly before leaving. All in all I finished up able to do my hiking again pain free. I recommend their services. - Peter
Nicole is an AWESOME caregiver !!! I went in with severe immobility of my shoulder and over the course of my sessions at OPTM, Nicole was an excellent guide and advisor. She took the time to understand my situation, tailor a plan for me and constantly rework it during the course of my treatments.
I am so grateful to Nicole for helping me get back to a normal lifestyle.
THANK YOU Nicole and OPTM!
Great PT that has worked to addressed my issues.
Natalie has been amazing from the start. She's very knowledgeable and has great ability to listen and ask all the right questions. She pays attention to detail and always has the patients well being at the forefront.. Highly recommend OPTM and Natalie is exceptional PT with a bright future ahead to help people!
I have been going there for the past year now and today was my last day and I just want to say they are full of great people there. Phil and Tyler were my therapist and I was very lucky to have them both throughout this process. Not only that but the Covid process and procedures you do here just makes you feel safe and open to come. OPTM is 100% recommended place to go!!
I have been to two other physical therapy places for prior issues and I would like to say that OPTM in Saratoga is the best experience I have had by far. Despite quite a lot of patient traffic, the front office is very organized and attentive to you when standing in line to check in, needing to schedule future appointments or having billing questions. Everyone is very pleasant and treats you like a valued client. But most importantly, my therapist, Nicole was the best I’ve ever experienced. She is a great listener, positive, very pleasant, empathetic and certainly knowledgeable in her medical discipline. She prepared a therapy plan for me based on the type of shoulder surgery I had, and measured my progress along the way, adjusting as necessary based on my progress. She’s a great asset to OPTM and I’ll miss my visits with her but I’m glad my recovery went as well as It did and am back to my daily routines.
I completed a successful 6 weeks of hip replacement physical therapy (PT) at OPTM Saratoga. OPTM took the time necessary during my initial assessment to fully understand my PT needs and where I wanted to be at the end of the 6 weeks. My physical therapist was concerned about maximizing my results. OPTM gave me a link to an app that allowed me to continue my PT exercises at home in between the in-person sessions, speeding up my recovery. All my appointments started and ended on time, along with the flexibility and convenience of allowing me to change a few appointments when necessary as my schedule changed. The insurance was handled by OPTM with no issues and minimal paperwork on my part.
I just completed 8 weeks of post total knee replacement physical therapy at OPTM in Saratoga. Since I have had PT on this same knee several times, I was concerned that I wouldn't receive the intensity that I wanted for the best results. I was assigned Tyler Vinson as my physical therapist. Tyler was perfect because he provided the intensity and hard work that I desired but tempered my treatment to prevent injury while gaining strength and range of motion. While I wanted to be pushed hard, Tyler clearly explained the value of going slow to get the best results. OPTM is a beautiful facility and the staff, from the front desk to the physical therapists are professional and thorough. I highly recommend this location for optimal physical therapy results.
I've had a great experience working with the OPTM staff and my PT Natalie. From the get go you could tell Natalie was experienced and knowledgeable, in addition to being attentive, friendly and patient. She always brought a fun and positive attitude to our sessions which made challenging exercises more enjoyable. My issues were resolved in a reasonable time and catered to my improvement without feeling rushed to complete sessions. Most of my family has used OPTM and if needed in the future I would not hesitate to be back.
I had a great experience at OPTM Physical Therapy of Saratoga. Nicole was very pleasant, interested in me as her client (although RJ did some of my appointments), listened to what I told her about my shoulder, was gentle although she pushed me enough for my strength to increase and my pain to decrease. Her directions for my exercises were clear and helpful. Kudos to her! She believes that people are important, not just their physical problems.
