There are more than a dozen causes of dizziness and many reasons why you might have difficulty with your balance. Our Physical Therapists have helped many people in our community recover from conditions that cause balance disorders.
The most important part of treating a balance disorder is understanding your diagnosis, the cause of the problem, and how to manage it.
Positional Vertigo – A Common Cause of Dizziness & Balance Disorders
If you have BPPV - benign paroxysmal positional vertigo, we can perform a series of simple movements, such as the Epley maneuver, which can help dislodge the calcium crystals from the semicircular canal of the ear. In many cases, one session works.
Our physical therapists can help increase your strength and coordination to help lower your risk of falling and getting hurt during daily activities, such as when you walk up or down stairs, use the bathroom, or exercise.
