About Balance Chicago

We are an elite physical therapy office and balance center located in Chicago whose main goal is to provide quality evaluation, treatment and education of  vestibular disorders and orthopedic injuries. This blog contains both information about vestibular disorders as well as our experiences working with patients, family and friends of those affected by vestibular disorders. Vestibular (inner ear) disorders are especially difficult to diagnose and treat as the symptoms are “invisible”, such as dizziness, loss of balance and vertigo.

On this blog we also will discuss aspects of our orthopedic therapies, as it is an important component of our physical therapy office.

We’re hoping that this blog will be a helpful resource for those affected by vestibular disorders and orthopedic injuries.  We will be blogging about our experiences in our office (obviously following HIPAA guidelines) as well as posting articles, research, and helpful links. Please let us know if you find this blog helpful or interesting – your comments and opinions are always appreciated.

    I was diagnosed with VORD and Meiemeir’s Disease almost three years ago. I understand you cannot give medical advise, I would just like to know if any of the patients you have treated have complained about having different sensations between the right and left sides of their bodies. When I have a migraine I only feel the pain on the right side, I taste differently on the rt side of my tongue as opposed to the left, I smell differently through each nostril. The right and left sides of my body seem to fight each other although to anyone watching me they could not see there is any difference including the nueror’s. I did not have this sensation prior to first becoming ill and the sensation started immediately when I fell ill. Thank you, Rene;
