“I love treating people throughout the lifespan because dizziness can happen to anyone, at anytime. There is so much that goes into recovery from a concussion or a vestibular neuritis, I love supporting that journey.”

My Personal Story

Purvi received her Doctorate in Physical Therapy from the University of Kansas in 2007.  But before graduation, she completed a pediatric internship in neurology at the Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children in London.  This unique experience drove her to pursue a practice in neurological rehabilitation. 

Her career began working with adults in the intensive care unit, the inpatient floors, and the outpatient diagnostic clinics for neurology and neurosurgery at the Methodist Hospital in Houston, TX.  In 2012, she completed the Neuro-Developmental Treatment Association’s certification course in the Treatment of Adults with Hemiplegia.

Always passionate about pediatrics, she transferred to Texas Children’s Hospital in Houston in 2012. She treated all areas of outpatient pediatric rehabilitation. Merging orthopedics, sports, and neurology, she established herself as the first vestibular therapist at Texas Children’s Hospital and helped to create an interdisciplinary concussion program for the whole hospital system.  To fortify her specialization, Purvi attended the APTA’s competency course in Vestibular Rehabilitation and Balance Therapy at Emory University in 2015.   Besides being a vestibular physical therapy specialist, her role included being faculty for the sports medicine physical therapy residency, guiding therapy staff towards competency in vestibular rehabilitation, participating in concussion research, and creating lectures and in-services for other practitioners on vestibular rehabilitation.  She has attended many advanced continuing education courses in concussion and vestibular rehabilitation.  Her current areas of interest are treatment of vestibular hypofunction, vestibular migraines, and the patient with post-concussive syndrome.

Recently, a new opportunity brought her and her family to Seattle, and she is very excited to be a part of the clinical staff at Cascade Dizziness & Balance PT.  She loves working with children, but she is looking forward to treating a variety of age groups.  Outside of work, she enjoys bullet journaling, eating at new restaurants, crossfitting, and snowboarding.
