The ENT Hearing and Balance Clinic includes 3 highly skilled team members, two Physical Therapists, as well as one Speech Language Pathologist (Speech Therapist). The vestibular therapy program at the Saint Alphonsus ENT Hearing and Balance Clinic was created to help eliminate or reduce the symptoms caused by vestibular(inner ear) disorders, such as dizziness, spinning, lightheadedness, trouble focusing or reading and loss of balance. All of our physical therapists are specially trained and certified in the field of balance and vestibular rehabilitation. Our Speech Therapist, through various therapies, can improve the patients voice, swallowing, and upper airway disorders. Between the three therapists, they share more than 60 years of experience in their respective fields, this experience allows them to treat patients effectively and efficiently. All therapy treatment is coordinated with the ENT and Audiologist providers, to ensure the finest continuum of care for the patient.
