Dr. Anson is an expert in vestibular rehabilitation with a research background in disorders of the vestibular system and other causes of balance problems. He received a Masters degree in Physical Therapy from Texas Tech University Health Science Center in 2003, his doctoral degree from the University of Maryland, and he completed a postdoctoral research fellowship at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine. His research interests include perception of self-motion and the effects of vestibular disorders on gaze and postural control problems during balance and walking.
