Vestibular Rehabilitation Therapy
This is a program that is based on an exercising that’s to reduce the balance and also bring dizziness related problems.When dizziness occurs some of the things that someone feels are like they are moving though they are not, at times they feel like they are passing out, or even feeling like they are not steady or better still they feel like their heads are swimming.The feelings one can feel them when they are either standing, lying down or they can feel it when they are changing positions. This symptoms can even last for seconds, or even some few minutes or at some times it can last for hours.Dizziness can affect the younger people although this are some of the rare cases that we have, mostly it gets to people who are seventy five years and above.For one to feel dizzy it can be due to having a problem with your ears that is the inner ear, medication, neck problem or even be a more serious problem such as the heart or even the brains.
It is not everyone who benefits from this therapy, the ones who actually benefit from it are the people who have had a brain injury, or they have some dizziness , or they find it very hard to balance themselves and if they may be having stroke. If someone’s vision is blurred or they have a neck stiffness, or if they are not able to hold things when they are walking, continued headaches then one needs to attend the therapy.
When one goes to see a physical therapist then they should be able to look at the following things, flexibility, how one is walking, the stability of how one is able to see the neck, the inner ear examination. When treatment is done then the physical therapist is able to check whether the symptoms that the patient had are working well. The improvement at all times is always gradually and when the falls reduce or there is none at all and then they are able to do their work properly, then one is able to be declared well. When one is able to balance themselves and they are not feeling the dizziness again after the exercises then you are sure that the problems have disappeared completely which is a good sign for everyone.The vestibular therapy can be the best thing a patient can have but at times having the surgery can be an option too which is not bad at all.
