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.

Our physical therapists are specially trained and certified in balance and vestibular rehabilitation. Our Speech Therapist can improve the patient’s voice, swallowing, and upper airway disorders through various therapies. The three therapists share more than 60 years of experience in their respective fields, which allows them to treat patients effectively and efficiently. All therapy treatment is coordinated with ENT and Audiology providers to ensure the finest continuum of care for the patient.
