The University of Chicago Ataxia Center provides comprehensive diagnosis, treatment, and management of ataxias, which can affect gait and balance.
Patients with falling, vertigo, and many types of rare gait and balance disorders can benefit from our multidisciplinary, compassionate team of specialists.
Our team provides the most current genetic tests available to diagnose hereditary types of ataxia. We work with our patients to develop individualized treatment plans that can include physical therapy, orthotics, speech therapy, and occupational therapy.
The Ataxia Center is actively involved in research studies, and our patients have access to the latest clinical trials of emerging ataxia therapies.
