Dizziness is a common and problematic issue which afflicts many people. It can result in unsteady walking, feelings of spinning and floating, whirling (vertigo) and nausea. Dizziness, while a moderate issue, can often signify an issue with the body’s inner mechanics. For example, it may be caused by issues in the ear, by medication side-effects or by a brain or heart problem.
Vestibular rehabilitation can be used to treated dizziness, vertigo, migraines, and various other issues including foggy-mindedness, back tightness, falling and blurred vision. A physical therapist will first need to test your vision, gait, balance, leg strength and other issues before recommending a course of therapy. Exercises such as vision stability training, balance retraining, fitness, ergonomics, stretching might be including in the patients’ treatment pan. Over several weeks, results are expected.
