Vestibular Rehab for Balance and Dizziness
The vestibular system is composed of organs in the inner ear that control balance and eye movements. If this system is compromised it can lead to balance difficulties, dizziness, headaches, nausea, and even falls.
BPPV (benign paroxysmal positional vertigo) is a common disorder of the inner ear that results in the sensation of vertigo, or spinning when the head is moved in in certain directions. This condition can accurately be identified by a physical therapist and can be treated and eliminated is as few as 1-2 visits.
Other common vestibular disorders that can be treated with physical therapy include: acoustic neuroma, age-related dizziness and balance, vestibular hypofunction, cerviogenic dizziness or headache, labyrinthitis, and vestibular neuritis.
A consultation with a physical therapist will help to identify the specific cause of your dizziness, headache, or balance difficulties. After your evaluation, your therapist will design a program consisting of exercise and hands on care to reduce you symptoms and restore your ability to participate in daily activities.
