Vestibular rehabilitation - physical therapy for dizziness is a very important part of our practice. We
have two outstanding and experienced physical therapists.
If you have a definitive diagnosis of BPPV and a referral, we encourage you to schedule with one of our PTs for speed, although of course a physician will also see you briefly. PT appointments are often available within a day or two. For BPPV, the typical number of appointments is 2 (initial, a followup). Complicated situations, of course, may take more appointments.

Visual vertigo evaluation and treatment.
In 2017, we added a specialist in visual vertigo to CDH. Dr. Sorensen, trained at the Illinois College of Optometry, evaluates persons who have dizziness mainly provoked by visual input -- for example, persons who have problems with walking down supermarket aisles. For persons who have eye problems on her evaluation, she may direct them to get new glasses, contacts, or start them on therapy. CDH does not sell glasses frames or contacts, but there are many stores within a block radius of the clinic, including one in the same building, where one's prescription can be filled.
