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. There are times when someone feels like they are dizzy and when this occurs one feels like they are not stable at all and they also feel like they can fall at any given time, they feel like they are heavy and can pass out at any given time. When one is standing, or when they are lying down or still when one is changing from one position to another this are the times when one can feel the dizziness in them. Dizziness can really last at times, it can be a few seconds a few hour or even minutes before one comes back to their normal self. The older people are the highly affected with the dizziness problem although this does not exclude the younger people which is very rare. Some medications can cause dizziness and this is not the only problem that can cause it, having an inner problem or even a neck dysfunction can cause it, at times it can be a more serious problem like having a problem with your 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 patients continue to do the exercises they have been given properly then some things like dizziness and balancing themselves disappear which is a plus for everyone. At times having the vestibular therapy is the best thing that one can have, if at times the problems are persistent then surgeries can be performed.
