Physical Therapy can reduce your Vertigo Symptoms

Vertigo Treatments

Vertigo is a sensation of dizziness or feeling off balance. This is usually caused by an inner ear problem. Problems with your inner ear can cause dizziness and visual disturbances, and even affect your balance. The inner ear sends signals to the brain about your head and body movements and helps you keep your balance.  A spell of vertigo can last for several hours, or even days. 

There are different types and causes of vertigo. For example, Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo is a condition that can develop after an illness or displacement of small crystals in the inner ear. Other potential causes of vertigo are headaches, tumors, multiple sclerosis, and even certain medications.

The vestibular system is the sensory system in the inner ear which contributes to the sense of balance and spatial orientation. Vestibular rehab is a type of physical therapy aimed at strengthening this system. Vestibular rehab can help a patient experiencing vertigo or vestibular issues get relief. By performing specific head movements, your physical therapist can move the crystals around in your inner ear that are causing vertigo. They can also help you with a series of exercises called Cawthorne exercises which can help decrease the sensitivity of the nerves and improve vertigo. There also are other treatments they can use to improve and work on your balance.

If you are interested in vestibular rehab and getting relief from your vertigo, we can help! Our team here at Reddy Care Physical and Occupational Therapy has extensive expertise in treating vertigo and balance disorders. Call us today and schedule a consultation!
