Established in 1998, the InBalance program serves people with balance and vestibular problems. The program is located in the Mabee Rehabilitation Center at Texas Health Fort Worth.
Symptoms of balance or vestibular problems include:
- Unsteadiness with walking
- Loss of balance
- Poor coordination
- Vision changes
- Hearing changes
The InBalance program services are provided by licensed physical therapists with additional training and education in the diagnosis and treatment of balance and vestibular disorders.
In addition to the therapists' knowledge and experience, the Mabee Rehabilitation Center has an Equitest Balance Master. This computerized testing equipment evaluates an individual's balance by comparing their score with others in their specific age range.
This equipment, as well as additional specialized balance and vestibular tests, allows physical therapists to provide individualized care and clearly document improvements in balance.
Services provided by physical therapists of the InBalance program include:
- Computer-assisted therapy
- Therapeutic exercises
- Repositioning techniques
Goals of the InBalance program include:
- Improve balance
- Increase safety with mobility

- Provide community-service screenings to identify those with balance problems who may benefit from physical therapy or other medical follow-up
