Pysical Therapy For Vertigo And Dizziness

Physical Therapy For Vertigo

Vertigo is a spinning sensation that typically occurs because of problems between the visual tracking and balance systems in the inner ear.

Dizziness can be caused by a variety of conditions, but typically occurs from poor perception in the joints / muscles combined with visual tracking problems and inner ear coordination with your vestibular system. When the brain receives all these mixed signals, it becomes confused and dizziness occurs.

Physical Therapy For Dizziness

Physical therapy plays a crucial role in helping dizziness and vertigo, by performing several key treatments. Physical therapists can help you feel more in control and in some cases can achieve instant results with specialized procedures. In other cases, balance and coordination training diminish the symptoms and allow you to move without dizziness or vertigo.

Vertigo and Dizziness

Our expert physical therapists have years of training in movement and balance analysis. We evaluate your leg strength, movement, balance reflexes and much more to determine exactly where your balance problem lies. Our physical therapist then formulate a complete treatment plan that will improve your balance and train you on what you can do to maintain the improvement.

Sitting down right away and rising slowly when getting up may help relieve vertigo. To improve balance, using a cane may also help.
