Is dizziness controlling your life?

Vestibular rehabilitation at Movement Physiotherapy & Performance can help.

Do you experience dizziness all the time? Have you ever felt dizzy and found yourself grabbing onto furniture or leaning against a wall to keep your balance throughout the day? You could be suffering from a vestibular disorder. Our physical therapists at Movement Physiotherapy & Performance can assist you in determining the source of your symptoms and guiding you to a solution that works with vestibular rehabilitation therapy.

Each year over 10 million patients visit a physician due to dizziness. Dizziness refers to various sensations, ranging from fainting to feeling weak or unstable. Dizziness is typically a sign of mechanical problems due to dysfunction of the vestibular system, both peripheral (inner ear, vestibular nerve) and central (brainstem, cerebellum), or a side effect of medications.

Why am I feeling dizzy?

Dizziness can refer to anything from feeling faint or lightheaded to feeling weak or unsteady. Vertigo, or the sensation that you or your surroundings are spinning, is another term you may have heard before. Dizziness or vertigo can have a significant impact on your daily life. As a result, even the simplest tasks can be difficult to complete without becoming exhausted.

Symptoms can be continuous or intermittent, lasting seconds to hours. They can happen while you’re standing still, lying down, or changing positions, such as rolling over in bed. Continuous symptoms can have a significant impact on your ability to carry out daily tasks.

Feeling dizzy all day as you try to work and get things done can be extremely disorienting. Vertigo and dizziness, along with back pain and headaches, are two of the most common reasons adults seek medical attention.

The following are the most common causes of balance problems:

  • Medication errors
  • Physical inactivity
  • Inner ear problems related to the vestibular system
  • Aging
  • Stroke

Whatever the cause or nature of your symptoms, our team at Movement Physiotherapy & Performance will use the most effective, research-based techniques to help you return to normal function as soon as possible.

How will vestibular therapy in Uniontown, PA help me?

The vestibular system, also known as the inner ear, has a variety of effects on balance. The vestibular system provides vital information to our brains about how we move and how our heads are positioned. It also includes motor functions that are in charge of our overall balance, stability, and posture.

We will conduct a comprehensive assessment of your medical history as well as a physical examination of your joints, muscles, coordination, posture, inner ears, and eye tracking capabilities during your initial evaluation. Our evaluation will assist in determining the most likely cause of your symptoms and guide our treatment options.
