The Vestibular System includes our eyes, ears, and joint receptors working in coordination with our brain to tell us where we are in space. When this system is compromised you can experience poor balance, dizziness and vertigo. There can be different mechanisms for these disorders of disequilibrium, and it is important to see your doctor for a proper diagnosis. Our vestibular rehabilitation therapists are specially trained to evaluate the cause of each individual’s symptoms and provide the specific type of manual therapy and vestibular rehabilitative exercises to bring the world back into balance.

Developed by Joseph Pilates in the early 1900's, this famous physical conditioning system was specially designed to strengthen and stretch the entire physique through mat based exercises. The original piece of apparatus, The Trapeze Table, was designed during World War I to aid injured soldiers in regaining strength and function. Exercises done on the mat and apparatus, the Reformer, Cadillac or Trapeze Table and Stability Chair, develop the body uniformly and emphasize a well balanced workout and an integrated body. A Pilates session combines matwork with various pieces of apparatus and uses one-on-one attention to hone core control, strength and proper breathing techniques for an in-depth, personalized experience. Everyone from athletes, dancers and individuals with chronic pain or specific limitations can benefit from expert instruction in the Pilates method. Experience the benefits of the Pilates Method. It is customized to your body and individual needs. Pilates reshapes and aligns the musculo-skeletal system, builds core strength, increases flexibility, improves posture and coordination and promotes a healthy, focused mind.
Multiple body systems are utilized to help control balance in the human body. Balance can be improved at any age with the appropriate exercise. Falls, which are linked to declining health and fractures, can also be reduced or prevented with proper training and exercise designed by a physical therapist. Staff at Gateway have extensive experience in these areas and have helped countless patients improve their balance and prevent future falls.
