VideosTip of the Day to Improve Balance and Prevent Falls
May 2013 Newsletter: How Can PT Help Decrease Dizziness
Besides the brain and central nervous system, three other integral parts that help us to keep our balance are these: The inner ear (vestibular system), the visual system, and the propriocetors (muscle-nerve communicators).
When one of these systems is not functioning well, it can result in such symptoms as dizziness, imbalance and falls, difficulty walking, vertigo, and decreased participation in work, recreation, or even normal daily activities due to fear of falling and loss of balance. Sometimes these symptoms can cause secondary problems like a stiff neck or decreased general fitness due to avoidance of activities or movements that exacerbate symptoms.
If you are experiencing dizziness or vertigo a physical therapist may be able to help you by developing a personalized exercise plan to help improve balance, decrease risk of falling, and improve your quality of life.
