What Highland, IN Thinks About Orthopedic & Balance Therapy Specialists

When I 1st started my therapy, I had a very hard time keeping my balance during assessment and therapy. After six visits I have noticed a marked difference in my balancing ability. One of the areas of vast improvement is driving for periods of more than 45 minutes. Prior to therapy, I would sometimes have to stop or arrive completely exhausted. Now I find that I can drive for the period of time without rest and arrive to my destination completely focused.

I was pretty unsteady when walking when I first came here. I was dizzy and falling often. The balance machine has reprogrammed me to use my muscles, weight shifts, eyes, and even my inner ear for better balance. I have not fallen since! This has been so valuable for me. Thanks OBTS!!!

Gloria C.

When I began treatment it was difficult (to) put on a “pullover” shirt. Now there is no pain at all. It was difficult to bend my arm and raise it above my head. I can move it freely and pain free now. I had difficulty sleeping through the night. Now I can get a good night’s sleep and wake up refreshed. Before I found it difficult/painful to turn the steering wheel of my car with parking. Now it is not a problem. I have been to other treatment centers – about 5, but here I feel I really received help immediately.

Gus S.

Physical therapy has significantly improved my left arm and hand weakness as well as my neck stiffness and discomfort. As a professional harpist, my condition had become very stressful and difficult during my performances. Through my therapist’s explanations, I now understand my condition and how to prevent future problems. It is wonderful to be able to do such activities as driving, cooking and playing the harp. Thank you, OBTS!


I am happy with everything Orthopedic & Balance Therapy Specialists has done for me. My vertigo attack was very scary, but in just 3 sessions with my therapist, he has given me my confidence back to feel I wasn’t helpless. I was able to go back to my normal activities without a fear of falling down.

I came in with pain in my legs, knee and foot. I had a hard time moving up and down stocking shelves at work. Now I am able to move more with very little pain. My legs and knees feel much better. I can bend them without my knee giving out. I love the people who work here and how they made me feel like a new person without surgery.
