Our expert therapists will evaluate your balance health and design an individualized plan that addresses your symptoms through treatments such as:
Vestibular Habituation Exercises:
These exercises focus on the specific activity or position causing dizziness in order to recondition the brain’s response.
Visual-Motor Adaptation Exercises:
These exercises use specific eye movements to help the vestibular system readapt.
Balance Retraining Exercises:
These exercises coordinate muscle and sensory responses for balance control.
This procedure treats “ear rocks”, or debris that may have collected within a specific part of the inner ear.
Our ability to stay in balance depends on our eyes, ears and feet working together to help us move safely. Disorders in the inner ear or vestibular system; as well as orthopedic, neurological, and visual problems, can result in the symptoms listed above. Balance related falls are a leading cause of injury in people over 65, although people of all ages can experience balance problems.
Fortunately, vestibular rehabilitation is one of the most successful treatments physical therapists offer. Premier Physical Therapy provides customized treatment programs tailored to the individual patient’s symptoms. Read on to learn how Premier can help you bring your health back into balance.
