Requirement

A prescription for a physical therapy evaluation and treatment with a diagnosis that is within 30 days of issue is required from a Maryland, Virginia or Washington, D.C. physician.

Our Program

Our program begins with a neuromuscular evaluation that consists of a visual/oculomotor exam, positional testing, a Hallpike vertigo measure, balance testing (including Smart Balance Master Sensory Organization Test and Limit of Stability Tests) and gait evaluation.
