Vestibular / Dizziness / BPPV
You have gone to your physician (or maybe not) and have reported dizziness, room spinning, difficulty maintaining balance, and other issues perhaps a combination of these. Physical therapy can help improve your symptoms and depending on the diagnosis completely stop them. Our unique approach looks at more than just your balance issue but other factors that may be affecting you such as your home environment, sleep habits, posture, and other issues such as your neck, diet, etc.
Vestibular / Dizziness / Vertigo / Unsteadiness
Many people have a hard time with balance. Your difficulties can be multi-faceted. Our unique approach assists you with your inner ear, eyes, feet, knees, hips, and core to improve your overall balance. We work the vestibular system (inner ear, eyes, and sensation), larger muscles of the body, and the smaller muscles to help you coordinate neck motions, head motions, core, and lower body with reduced loss of balance and to decrease your dizziness/vertigo.
What is BPPV? Many times you or someone you know has been diagnosed with BPPV. It is one of the most common diagnoses of vertigo and is characterized by the sudden onset of dizziness with a feeling of suddenly falling or spinning in the head. Symptoms are usually triggered by sudden changes in head position such as lying down, looking down/up, etc. This type of dizziness can be fixed in 1 or 2 visits to the Doctor of Physical Therapy.
