Patients with vestibular disorders often experience problems with vertigo, dizziness, visual disturbance, and/or imbalance. These are the problems that physical therapy aims to address. Symptoms due to vestibular disorders can diminish quality of life and impact all aspects of daily living. They may also contribute to anxiety and depression causing people affected by this dysfunction to adopt a sedentary lifestyle in order to avoid bringing on, or worsening, dizziness and imbalance. As a result, decreased muscle strength and flexibility, increased joint stiffness, and reduced stamina can occur. Your therapist can customize an exercise-based treatment program primarily designed to reduce vertigo and dizziness, gaze instability, and/or imbalance and falls.
