Oftentimes people feel helpless,
but a full recovery is possible.
Am I a Candidate for Vertigo
or Vestibular Therapy?
Our sense of position, balance, movement, rotation, and reality is determined
by our vestibular system.
Do you suffer from vertigo?
Does the room ever spin when you:
- stand up
- turn your head
- move in bed
Are you dizzy or is your balance off?
Do you fear falling and intentionally restrict your movement?
What is Vertigo?
Vertigo is caused when a crystal in your inner ear dislodges and moves into circular canals where it alters the flow of fluid. This makes the room seem to spin around you.
If you are tired of things spinning, come in to see a physical therapist.
What is Vestibular Therapy?
If we do not train or strengthen our muscles, we will lose them. The vestibular system works the same way. We must train the system with specific exercises so it will continue to provide information about our position in space.
The first step toward recovery is to schedule an appointment with us.
Why is it important to stimulate my vestibular system?
As it declines, fear of falling promotes further lack of movement—further weakening the vestibular system.
This can be delayed through specific exercises that train the vestibular system.
