Balance problems can result from a variety of causes including head injuries, inner ear disorders, orthopedic conditions, stroke, Parkinson's disease and other neurological conditions. Once a person has fallen, they have a greater fear of falling again. Often times this fear causes them to stop being active, which leads to a loss of strength, flexibility, and mobility, making falls or injury more likely.

Many balance and dizziness conditions improve with specialized physical therapy called Vestibular Rehabilitation Therapy (VRT) or Rehabilitative Balance Therapy (RBT).

Disorders that typically respond well to physical therapy include, but are not limited to:

  • Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV)
  • Migraine Associated vertigo (MAV)
  • Vestibular Neuritis/Labrynthitis
  • Motion Sensitivity
  • Post Concussion Syndrome
  • Meniere's Disease
  • Other musculoskeletal or neurologic disorders resulting in balance or dizziness problems

If you are experiencing dizziness, spinning, difficulty walking or veering, loss of balance or falls, motion sensitivity, headaches, fatigue or general deconditioning physical therapy can help improve your symptoms and restore safe mobility.
