Balance and Vestibular

Don’t Let Your Balance Problems Stop You from Living a Balanced Life

Statistics indicate that more than 69 million people have experienced vestibular dysfunction during their lifetime. Unfortunately, however, most have gone undiagnosed and untreated… because they don’t even know they have a problem.

Vestibular dysfunction can best be defined as any change in vision, hearing, and/or balance that impairs your mobility, daily living, and mental state and prevents you from getting the most out of life. Symptoms of vestibular disorders include frequent or persistent:

  • Vertigo
  • Lightheadedness or dizziness
  • Imbalance
  • Nausea
  • Vision disturbances
  • Hearing changes

When left untreated, vestibular disorders can lead to other problems, including, but not limited to, psychological issues and impaired memory and other cognitive abilities. So, if you are experiencing any combination of the above symptoms, don’t give up hope, and don’t wait any longer to get treatment.

Our Therapists Will Help You Regain Control

When properly diagnosed and treated, patients with vestibular or other balance problems can take control of their disorders, rather than having their disorders control them. Our physical therapists will provide you with one-on-one treatment to assess your condition, needs, and goals and will come up with a personalized physical treatment plan to address your specific symptoms.

Among other things, some of the symptom-specific treatments in your personalized PT plan may include:

  • Balance training
  • Gait Training
  • Adaptation and stabilization exercises
  • Habituation techniques
  • Fall prevention
  • Transfer training

 

Additionally, your physical therapist will work closely with you to make sure you fully understand your vestibular or other balance disorder and can help educate your family and provide you with other information and resources.
