What is the Vestibular System?
The vestibular system, informally known as the inner ear, helps the brain to identify the speed and direction of head turns in order to maintain balance and a steady gaze.
What are Symptoms of Vestibular Disorders?
Vestibular disorders can result in vertigo, spinning sensations, imbalance, feelings of floating or sinking, heaviness, or the sense of being pulled in a certain direction. Other symptoms include difficulty focusing one’s vision, decreased concentration, and visual bouncing with any body movement.
How can Physical Therapy Help?
Physical therapy can help to reduce symptoms, improve balance, reduce falls, and ultimately return to activities previously limited by vestibular dysfunction. Dry Creek therapists are specialized in treating vestibular disorders with one-on-one treatment.
It is best to start physical therapy with minimal symptoms, but therapy can help during all stages of vestibular disorders.
