It is estimated that 40% of individuals will experience vestibular system disturbance symptoms at least one time in their life. The vestibular system includes the parts of the inner ear and brain that process the sensory information involved with controlling balance and eye movements. Vestibular disorders can result from disease or injury to the processing areas.
Dizziness can be positional or nonpositional. Other symptoms include:
- Imbalance and spatial disorientation
- Vision disturbance
- Hearing changes
- Cognitive and/or psychological changes
Common treatments are simple and usually do not require many visits. Physical Therapy – when used correctly can be a very successful treatment for these vestibular problems and can quickly get you back to your usual daily activities.
If you have experienced any of these symptoms, please tell your physician and ask if Physical Therapy might help you. For an evaluation by a Licensed, Physical Therapist call, contact us using the form to the right.
