What We Offer?
"When my stroke happened I felt alone, worried and Vulnerable. But I was also determined to get better. When I met Dr. Nidhi Seth, My Neuro-vestibular Physical Therapist.. who is also stroke rehabilitation specialist, I knew I had found my champion and cheer leader. Her knowledge and compassion combined with drive and determination were key to successfully overcoming and adapting to my stroke and accompanied vestibular deficits. Now I do all of the things that are important to me and that make me feel whole, happy and confident. I am forever grateful."
"Nidhi has been so great and so helpful throughout my rehabilitation journey and helping me figure out how life was going to change and how to accept that change as well. Nidhi has always been very encouraging and never let me give up. I think my recovery would have been very different if I didn't have Nidhi to help me through it."
"Dr. Seth definitely inspired me and played a big part in my ongoing healing and journey back to better balance, well-being, and health! Since the time I started seeing her for physical therapy for my vestibular issues and balance, I have been walking 4-6 evenings/week, 4-5mi each walk. I use the Calm app daily and am really benefitting from meditation and mindfulness. Working with Nidhi got me started on the right path physically and psychologically, and she contributed significantly to my sense of well-being when I was unsure of myself and my ability to heal. When she showed me her forearm tattoo that says, “Liberate Yourself”, that had a huge impact on me, and I’ve kept that principle in mind as I’ve continued to rebuild my self-confidence and ability to enjoy my life again. Thank you so much for being my first therapist and for getting me started in a wonderful direction!"
A physical therapist who specializes in vestibular migraine physical therapy may be able to help relieve unsteadiness once migraine attacks have been better controlled. Exercises to improve balance control are used by therapists. The purpose of therapy is to make you less sensitive to things that make you dizzy, nauseated, or unsteady. The physical therapist will assess the patient and create an exercise programme to help them become more tolerant of movement and uncomfortable conditions. Exercises are progressed until the patient can handle normal or near-normal levels of light, sound, and activity at the end of treatment. The therapist will also perform balance tests and provide exercises to help the person feel more stable in their home and area.
