Welcome to Peak & Balance Centers of America

Peak & Balance Centers of America was founded by Jim Buskirk, a world-renowned specialist highly skilled in the treatment of vestibular disorders, orthopedic conditions, and sports injuries. He is well published and a regular instructor at several Chicagoland medical universities, covering the vestibular system, disorders, and treatments.

Jim has also worked extensively with NFL and NHL players, the US Navy, and the Air Force Academy in treating and preparing athletes and pilots with balance issues and concussive injuries. When left undetected, concussions can result in damage to the inner ear and brain and lead to chronic vestibular disorders, which impact balance, learning, social interactions and the ability to perform everyday tasks. The Vestibular Disorders Association (VEDA) Youth Concussion Vestibular Connection campaign recently released a video with Jim Buskirk which explains the importance of vestibular rehabilitation treatment and finding medical help.  To view the video, please click here.

Peak & Balance has three Chicagoland locations, each staffed by experienced therapists with extensive training in the treatment of orthopedic injuries and balance disorders.
