How Physical Therapists Can Help with Dizziness and Balance Issues

Updated: Jul 11


Vertigo Vestibular Rehabilitation It is helpful to find a therapist that is experienced with vestibular rehabilitation because positional vertigo is easy to address with physical therapy. Positional vertigo can be caused by small particles in the inner ear that have moved from their normal area. The therapist will place you in certain positions to identify the source of your vertigo and then apply the appropriate treatment to help the inner ear return to normal.


Balance Issues If muscle weakness is causing your balance issues, physical therapy can help strengthen and improve balance. These exercises will also increase your mobility, flexibility, and reduce your risk of falling and reducing injury.


When You Should Seek Medical Help To help you decide whether or not you should seek medical help for a dizzy spell, ask yourself the following questions. If you answer “yes” to any of these questions, please make an appointment with one of our ENT physicians. • Do I feel unsteady? • Do I feel as if the room is spinning around me? • Do I feel as if I’m moving when I know I’m sitting or standing still? • Do I lose my balance and fall? • Do I feel as if I’m falling? • Do I feel “lightheaded” or as if I might faint? • Do I have blurred vision? • Do I ever feel disoriented, such as losing my sense of time or where I am?
