Performance Physical Therapy

I was treated for my neck and shoulders, primarily by Jennifer. I also saw a few other therapists, but not once did I have to repeat my story. The environment of PPT and the friendliness of all the staff made my visits enjoyable! I can’t believe how pain free I am! I’ve been to other therapy places; PPT is TOPS!

Always helpful professional knowledgeable. Just an all out great experience.

Before coming to PPT I saw another physical therapist about hip pain. After seven weeks there wasn’t any improvement. A friend recommended PPT and the results were phenomenal! Sean thoroughly tested my range of motion and prescribed several stretching and strengthening exercises. He progressed these weekly. He re-tested my ROM after six weeks and the improvements were remarkable. Plus the pain was gone! Sean will be my PT for life!

From the start of my PT everyone I encountered was very friendly and pleasant. I was impressed with the interaction between staff and how knowledgeable Taylor (PT) as well as the techs were when I asked questions. I would recommend this office!!!

I came to Performance Physical Therapy several years ago because I had heard good things about them, having been disappointed in other PT practices I had used over the years. Most recently, the last two sets of therapy have been with Jordan Morris, who is an outstanding diagnostician and therapist. He carefully evaluated my aches and pains and the exercises he used and therapies he applied succeeded in vastly improving my strength and flexibility. I would most definitely work with him again if I have any other issues. He is an asset to the practice.

Knowledgeable, friendly, and great staff well organized.

Highly Recommend! I was extremely impressed w/the quality of care I received. The Physical therapist, Sam Bachman, had her Doctorate in Physical Therapy - was up to date on the latest treatments and had me 100% for a shoulder issue in just a few short weeks, after months of pain. I would definatly go back to PPT for any future needs!

Why do I feel off balance when I walk?

Why do I feel off balance when I walk?

Feeling off balance while walking can be caused by a number of different factors. Some common causes include:

1. Inner ear problems:

The inner ear, also known as the vestibular system, is responsible for
maintaining balance and coordination. Inner ear problems such as Meniere’s disease, benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV), and vestibular neuritis can cause feelings of off balance while walking.

2. Neurological conditions:

Neurological conditions such as Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, and stroke can affect the brain and nervous system, leading to feelings of off
balance while walking.

3. Musculoskeletal problems:

Musculoskeletal problems such as arthritis, osteoporosis, and back pain can affect the muscles, bones, and joints, leading to feelings of off balance while
walking.

4. Medications:

Some medications can cause side effects that affect balance, such as
drowsiness, dizziness, and vertigo.

5. Age-related changes:

As we age, our balance and coordination can deteriorate, making falls and injuries more likely.

6. Poor vision :

Poor eyesight can affect your ability to see obstacles or uneven surfaces and
make it difficult to maintain balance while walking

7. Lack of physical activity:

Lack of physical activity can lead to a decline in muscle strength, flexibility, and balance.

8. Fatigue or stress:

Can affect your ability to focus and make you feel off balance

It’s important to note that feeling off balance while walking can be caused by multiple factors, and a healthcare professional can help determine the underlying cause and develop a treatment plan accordingly. They may refer you to a specialist such as an otolaryngologist, neurologist, or physical
therapist to help you with the problem.
