Falls are a leading cause of injury in younger and older adults, and the leading cause of death in those over the age of 85. Dizziness, falls, fall-related injuries and the fear of falling can often diminish the length and quality of human life.

Located in the Rehabilitation Services Department in the Tyler Center at the RMC Anniston campus, the Tyler Center for Balance Disorders offers a unique, comprehensive center that diagnoses and treats dizziness, vertigo, disequilibrium, and walking disorders. With an exclusive program at RMC specifically dedicated to diagnosing and treating a variety of balance & vestibular disorders this no longer needs to be an issue for you or a loved one.

SmartMaster Equitest & Long Force Plate System

Our SmartMaster Equitest System and Dynamic Gait Force Plate allow the therapist to individually evaluate the systems in the body that control balance, gait and movements.

Our InVision System allows us to evaluate the eyes and how eye movements contribute to balance.

This, along with standardized Physical Therapy evaluation techniques assist us to localize the source of the problem and design an individualized Vestibular Rehabilitation Program (VRP) for each patient.

RMC is one of only two hospitals in Alabama to use an advanced technology to treat and diagnose balance disorders. We utilize the same state-of-the-art breakthrough technology as NASA specifically created to diagnose and treat the cause of dizziness and loss of balance in astronauts upon their return from shuttle missions.

To see a specialist in the RMC Center for Balance Disorders, a physician’s referral is required. For additional information or to schedule an appointment, please contact the RMC Department of Rehabilitation Services at 256-235-5688.
