The Werner Institute for Balance and Dizziness, America's expert on restoring balance, is uniting efforts with Fyzical, taking conventional pain management physical therapy to a whole new level of comfort and care. Our patients deserve a life free of pain, a life free of dizziness, and they deserve a physical therapy experience that offers the most advanced tools in the most comfortable, warm environment. That's what they'll find at Fyzical.
Fyzical opened as The Werner Institute for Balance and Dizziness, Inc. in the northwest region of Las Vegas in late November 2005, founded by Brian K. Werner, MPT.
Fyzical Balance Centers specialize in diagnosing and treating patients with peripheral and central nervous system disorders of the balance system. We provide state-of-the art testing services and equipment along with hands-on physical therapy for improving balance and vertigo -- this is called vestibular rehabilitation or balance retraining therapy.
Our 4,400 square foot clinic features a well-equipped gym with the superior the Guldmann Full-Body Harness system (see above). Attached to the I-beams of the ceiling, the Guldmann system is designed to support and protect the patients when challenging balance and gait.
(Vestibular Rehabilitation Theory: Adaptation through training. The harness system acts as a protective barrier when challenging balance. Similar to the use of harness systems with Artists like Cirque du Soleil or back-up pilots during complex flight training, the harness system allows maximum practice with minimal behavioral fear overload. This allows the patient to in a sense "push the envelope" of function for maximal results in a minimal of time.)
We're proud to be the FIRST facility in the Las Vegas area to offer vestibular auto-rotational testing (VAT), one of the most advance diagnostic system available for detecting disorders of the inner ear related to balance. VAT measures how your brain and inner ears work together to maintain stable vision/gaze.
