Vestibular Rehabilitation: How You Can Eliminate or Manage Dizziness and Restore Your Balance

Your balance system includes your eyes, inner ear and sensation in your feet. When one of these systems is off, you can get a variety of symptoms, including:

  • Dizziness
  • Vertigo
  • Nausea/vomiting
  • Sensation of spinning
  • Difficulty with balance
  • Frequent falls
  • Headaches
  • Sensitivity to light and noise
  • Changes in hearing
  • Ringing in the ears

The severity of these symptoms can vary from simply annoying, to making you sick to your stomach, and in severe cases, can make it impossible to function. Dizziness is an issue for many people who live or work in Federal Way. Fortunately, excellent treatment is available in our Federal Way Clinic.

What is The Vestibular System?

Your inner ear, or, in medical terms your vestibular system, is made up of intricate sensory organs that send information to your brain about motion, equilibrium, and spatial orientation. This ongoing stream of information helps you keep your balance when you move your head or body. When there is a disruption in these signals, it can cause dizziness, trouble with balance, problems with hearing, and vision problems. 

Vestibular Rehabilitation: An Effective Solution to Dizziness

Vestibular rehabilitation is physical therapy which is specially designed to help people eliminate or manage dizziness, vertigo, or balance difficulties. A trained physical therapist in our Federal Way clinic will evaluate your symptoms and create an individualized treatment plan to help you eliminate or manage your symptoms.

BPPV: An Inner Ear Condition Which Causes Severe Dizziness

BPPV, short for Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo, a common vestibular issue, is a condition in which you experience severe dizziness with head turns or changes in position (like rolling over or sitting up in bed). This is caused by crystals in the inner ear becoming dislodged from the appropriate organ and moving into the semicircular canals. Although the spinning sensations can be severe, the treatment for BPPV is simple and symptoms are often resolved in as little as one session with a trained physical therapist!

At the initial evaluation, your therapist will:

  • Carefully listen to your medical history
  • Assess and treat your dizziness symptoms
  • Provide education about your condition
  • Educate you about treating and managing future dizziness
  • Answer your questions and address your concerns
  • Help you to improve your balance and remain independent

Your physical therapist will use a patient-centered, active approach to vestibular rehabilitation and will guide you through your treatment with patience and compassion.
