Can severe balance problems ever get better?

As a therapist, are there ever times where you encourage patients to do some sort of alternative therapies?

Maybe the therapies that you're working on with someone aren't letting them heal as quickly as you would expect? I’ve heard of hyperbaric oxygen therapy or acupuncture, and some of these other things that people have tried. Based on what I've heard, the research isn't quite there for a lot of these. But for some of them, there are a lot of stories saying that they have helped people a lot.

Falling forward

I'm accustomed to leaning back after being in a wheelchair for 10 years. I've been walking with a walker for 6 years. I'm trying to walk unassisted again, but I can't get the sensation to fall forward. Does anyone have any advice for that?
