About

Formerly known as the Kitchener-Waterloo Balance Centre, BalanceLab has been providing diagnostic services for the the tri-city region and surrounding townships since 2015. Identifying a need for a multidisciplinary approach to managing vestibular disorders, BalanceLab has partnered with VOR physiotherapy to offer comprehensive rehabilitative programs on-site.

We are proud to be the only multidisciplinary clinic of its kind in Canada.
