Management of Vertigo, Dizziness, Balance issues and more
Dizziness is a feeling that turns your world upside down (at least it feels that way). It is unfortunately a little tricky to diagnose why you are experiencing impaired balance. Dizziness can be a result of injury to joints or muscles, nerve damage, orthopedic problems, or neurological disorders.
It is hard to stay upright when you are feeling the symptom of dizziness, and not finding a resolution means you are at risk of greater injury.
Physical therapy for dizziness and balance problems
Those over 65 are at a higher risk of falling, and those over 75 will be visiting their doctor due to an imbalance issue. One quarter of those admitted into the hospital are admitted because of an injury due to falling, and fractures occur most often because of falls. Anyone can be affected by dizziness, but the route of the cause can be vastly different. Those over the age of 65 are more likely to experience this symptom and is a large factor in many losing their independence.
Customizing a treatment plan just for you
More than one body system can cause you to experience this symptom. Programs to regain balance focus on the individual and great care is given to ensure proper treatment. This means that you’ll need to consider where the problem started in order to address a resolution.
Issues with the spine, hip, knee, feet, neck and head are just a few areas you’ll start to look at. Programs to recovery are designed based on individual needs. This means those over 65 will reach a greater feeling of independence.
