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.
Causes of dizziness we treat
BPPV (Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo)
Vestibular Hypofunction (often due to vestibular neuritis or labyrinthitis)
Vestibular Migraine or Migraine Associated Dizziness
Cervicogenic Dizziness or dizziness associated with neck problems
Dizziness due to concussion/ traumatic brain injury
Persistent Postural Perceptual Dizziness (formerly known as Chronic Subjective Dizziness)

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.
Tool-Assisted Manual Therapy is a type of physical therapy that promotes the regeneration of healthy soft tissues (muscles, tendons, etc.) and eliminates or decreases scar tissue that might be causing discomfort or movement limitations.
Astym therapy has been shown to be highly successful in restoring movement and alleviating pain from soft tissue injury/dysfunction, even when other techniques fail. One of the major reasons for this is that Astym was created to address the underlying source of a number of soft tissue issues rather than merely treating symptoms.

Kinesio taping is a form of medical adhesive tape used to treat musculoskeletal problems. It’s made of breathable, flexible material, usually cotton or a cotton blend, and is applied just below the skin’s surface.
The benefits of kinesiology taping are to improve circulation, support muscles, encourage healing, and help prevent injury or further injury.

James Paterson took me from a 72 year old that had shoulder replacement years ago with arthritis pain in both shoulders. I now work out regularly and am pain free. He knew what to do and where to exercise for slowly bringing back range of motion. I have use of my shoulders and am much stronger thanks to James.
I have tendinitis. It was hard to find an appointment with a hand therapist in Marin. I had to wait for my first appointment with Jessica, but it was worth it. I’ve seen her for a year and she has helped me regain motion, reduce pain and given me great advice and tools to help me at home. She’s personable, caring and an expert in her field. Everyone at this facility is great.
